It is crucial that the Reykjavík Global Forum community stimulates real change: a positive measurable change. In the spirit of Power, Together, the Forum launched its Community of Action Initiative to do exactly this.
The Community of Action is a platform designed to allow the collation of a number of initiatives designed to stimulate change. Whether it be a change in policy, a change in mind set or a change in an individual, the Forum is committed to not only talk the talk but walk the walk and encourages its partners, Conversationists and members to do the same.
The Community of Action was launched during the Reykjavík Global Forum Community of Action breakfast on Tuesday, 25 June, 2019, in Tokyo, Japan. Featuring opening remarks from Ambassador Elín Flygenring, Icelandic Ambassador to Japan, the latest news on the Reykjavik Index for Leadership, presented by Michelle Harrison, Global CEO of Public Division, Kantar, the official launch of the Conversationist Pledge by Silvana Koch-Mehrin, President of WPL and a networking session, it was an impactful and insightful breakfast.
