The Declaration for Hope.
Written by you.
One of our most important tasks at the conference will be the drafting of The Declaration for Hope. This document will describe our guiding principles, and will serve as our common vision for living our lives with hope and compassion. And you will play a very important part in creating it.
At lunch, small groups will meet to deliberate on an initial draft of the document. This will be your chance to make history! — to be there at the beginning, offering your own insights, which will be collected and distilled, and joined with those from other groups. At the end of the conference, we will present a final Declaration for the approval and signing of all those in attendance.
The Declaration will then become a permanent part of the Ignite Hope website, with an invitation to all visitors to the site to affirm its principles, and by so doing commit themselves to living the goals and ambitions of the Ignite Hope initiative.
We are excited to have you be a part of this collaborative, and historic, event.
