The Elders

Watch this YouTube video to find our about The Elders.

The Elders are an independent group of global leaders working together for peace and human rights. The Elders was founded by Nelson Mandela to “support courage where there is fear, foster agreement where there is conflict and inspire hope where there is despair.”

The Elders represent an independent voice, not bound by the interests of any nation, government or institution.

They are committed to promoting the shared interests of humanity, and the universal human rights we all share.

They believe that in any conflict, it is important to listen to everyone – no matter how unpalatable or unpopular this may be.

They aim to act boldly, speaking difficult truths and tackling taboos.

The Elders don’t claim to have all the answers, and stress that every individual can make a difference and create positive change in their society.
