Ashoka Inspirational Talks
While necessary, the challenging context in which we now find ourselves can make it very difficult to work on creating a better future. Much about the Covid-19 pandemic remains uncertain, including its long-term social and economic consequences. And beyond this, climate change and other ongoing issues remain to be dealt with.
However, some individuals are taking action. Ashoka Fellows are a group of extraordinary changemakers who see the world not as it is, but as it should be. And who are building the pathways to get us there.
The Ashoka Inspirational Talks give you a chance to discuss the most pressing social problems directly with them, listen to their solutions, and get some inspiration to become a changemaker yourself. Organized by Ashoka Switzerland, this series of online conversations is open to anyone looking to impact the world positively.
