2018 JHU SPEAKERS
This year, our conversations at the Forum will be organized around the theme of Mzuzah. “Building a realistic intersection between Sustainability, Social /Environmental Impact and Economic Empowerment’’. In order to address key sustainability issues in Africa and other emerging countries, we must more deeply understand the current status quo—and how to disrupt it. There is no other way to do this than to engage with and be close to, the people and communities facing deep and persistent biases of all kinds. We’ll hear from community leaders, activists, social entrepreneurs, and innovators who bring a profound appreciation of our shared challenges and who have worked from within and side-by-side with communities to find solutions.
*“Mzuzah” means wealth creation in the most ethical, beautiful, innovative and sustaining way that engages the support of the creator of the universe.*
The MZUZAH Forum has invited partners and other innovators to host a series of independently-organized Fluke Events in creation of MzuzahWeek, a comprehensive platform for global social and environmental progress. Mzuzah Week brings additional voices from across sectors and regions to Baltimore to participate in rich dialogue, forge connections, and seize on the energy sparked by the Forum. The general public is also invited to join Forum plenary sessions and after-hours activities.
