CPH DOX film festival 2010 & One World presents:
.IT WORKS! dialogue on compassionate actions in a globalized world
with EMMANUEL JAL
Every action we take as individuals or as a society,
affects other individuals and societies.
We all share basic needs. We are all connected.
We are all human.
Humanity has always had to find solutions. The larger problems
need common actions. The sum of individual contribution results
in changes. With the central goal of respect for human rights,
protection of children and education for all, the panel guests will
present constructive tools and ideas from art, music, film, theatre,
design, the IT industry, humanitarian organizations, human rights
organizations, journalism and the education sector. How can we
inspire each other to collaborate, to think with our hearts and use
our knowledge for construction instead of destruction?
Our special guest is living proof that IT WORKS!
Former child soldier and now celebrated Hip Hop artist, actor,
author of the autobiography War Child and human rights activist
Emmanuel Jal, will give his testimony and suggestions on how to
change the world by making a difference.
At the concert celebrating Nelson Mandelas 90 years birthday Peter
Gabriel called Emmanuel Jal “An impressive musician with the
potential of a young Bob Marley!”
Jal will present his projects Gatwitch Festival and Sudanese Summit,
his foundation GUA Africa, his campaign Lose to Win and other
successful actions to increase awareness.
This day of dialogue aims to identify the cause of problems and to
suggest ideas on what can be done to increase self-sufficiency,
independence and problem solving locally through global networks.
In an open dialogue between the panel and the audience, everyone
will be able to find inspiration from each other and contribute with
ideas on what works.
