Creating a fairer world for future generations

10 December 2022 – International Day of Human Rights

For the occasion of International Day of Human Rights, Faces of Change foundation and ImpactLeaders international organized an event in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The keynote speaker was Jessica Lockhart, CEO and Founder of the International Institute of Humanology. The title of her presentation was ‘I have a dream too’.

Jessica Lockhart took us on a journey to understand her dream of a fair and peaceful world. She is convinced her dream can be realised, because; peace starts with us, so we can do it.
