World Human Forum 0.0 meeting: Imagining & Building the World Human Forum

On the 1st and 2nd of April 2017, 120 thinkers and doers from all walks of life and different parts of the world had an open and constructive dialogue on “Imagining and Building the World Human Forum”, a meeting that took place at the European Cultural Centre of Delphi, in Greece.

These 2 days we all had the opportunity to participate in working sessions, to ask crucial questions, and also give practical answers. We were inspired and motivated by innovative artistic activities and vivifying improvisational processes. Even during eating breaks there was a communal feeling that created inviting spots for further discussions!

At the end of the meeting, it was obvious for all why now is the appropriate time, the Kairos, to launch such an initiative and what its purpose will be. The World Human Forum, through collective intelligence and organic growth, will explore and share solutions, address the big challenges faced by the contemporary world and support the emergence of new responses, creating networks that impact positively human life and society.

The detailed results of the meeting and the immediate plan of action will be announced in the month of May.
