Intelligence² presents The Elders

Gro Harlem Brundtland, Jimmy Carter, Mary Robinson and Desmond Tutu in conversation with Jon Snow

The interview with Jimmy Carter a few months ago was truly inspiring.  Carter will once appear in London, this time with members of The Elders–former holders of the world’s most important and demanding positions who are together trying to tackle the world’s most challenging issues.

From the Intelligence Squared Website:
“Independent, free now from the constraints of office, with a wealth of experience and the ability to open doors at the highest level, The Elders are helping tackle some of the world’s most intractable problems.    Brought together by Nelson Mandela in 2007, The Elders use their collective experience and influence to promote peace, justice and human rights worldwide, using private advocacy and public diplomacy.

They include the former holders of some of the world’s most important and demanding posts, as well as individuals with an extraordinary track record on peace-making, reconciliation and driving social change.   To celebrate the group’s fifth anniversary, on Monday 2 July Intelligence Squared will be hosting four of the Elders on stage in London at the Barbican Centre.

Richard Branson and Peter Gabriel, whose original vision of The Elders was translated into reality by Nelson Mandela, will make a special guest appearance. Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow will be in the chair.

Join us for an evening of debate and discussion with four of the world’s most experienced and inspiring leaders.”
