We all want to live in a better world. But we often feel we don’t have the personal power to make the change we want to see. But even when it involves mass movements, change can only be carried out by individuals.
World-Changers is a series where John-Paul Flintoff talks to prominent individuals who have made a huge difference – and who believe that anybody could do the same. Tonight he talks to Marina Cantacuzino, founder of The Forgiveness Project, a non-profit independent organisation that explores forgiveness and reconciliation through individual real-life stories, and promotes alternatives to violence and revenge.
Using insights from her extraordinary work at the frontiers of reconciliation, Cantacuzino will suggest simple, non-threatening ways to explore the stories we carry around with us (sharing as little or as much as we feel comfortable with). She will show how we can sometimes learn more from mistakes and failure than we can learn from success.
