Live Event: The Elders discuss the power of forgiveness as a tool in conflict resolution.
On December 16, Mary Robinson, Juan Manuel Santos and Zeid Raad Al Hussein will take part in the inaugural Forgiveness Forum, with the Templeton World Charity Foundation.
Register here to join the Elders in discussion from 10 am EST/ 3pm GMT.
With their years of collective experience on conflict-resolution and peacebuilding, the Elders will explore the relationship between forgiveness, reconciliation, empathy, justice and hope.
This one-hour virtual event will consider how seemingly intractable issues such as climate injustice, COVID-19, racial inequality and political instability can benefit from forgiveness and empathic leadership.

“Forgiveness and reconciliation are fundamental to the process of peace making and peace building. As the leader of a country that experienced tremendous suffering through conflict for many years, I know the importance of finding common ground and shared goals with those you have profoundly disagreed with. Only then can one consider true justice and hope for a better future.”
– Juan Manuel Santos
