Change Makers shooting off

One offshoot of Creating Change is the ChangeMaker program, developed by us. The youth of Tunisia sparked in its protests the Arab Spring. After the revolution big challenges arose and blocked anticipated developments. Young Tunisians are still waiting for their reward. More effective initiatives need to be taken.

For a first outline see ChangeMakers.

Summing up :  Malta, European Leaders Conference 2011

At the conclusion of this historic conference assessing “A New Vision for Cooperation Between Europe and Africa and the Culture of Peace,” we propose that the relationship of Europe and Africa be fostered, for the sake of peace and development, through mutual respect, dialogue, and “people to people” interaction, guided by the principle of living for the sake of others. In this way, we can build a culture of peace.

Just as Malta has sustained its neutrality under many trials and embraced its neighbors to the north and south, Europe and Africa should hold to a relationship that recognizes their common interest in cooperation for prosperity and peace. By engaging in ongoing, constructive dialogue both Europeans and Africans can achieve greater awareness, understanding, and appreciation of one another.
