Ahimsa Forum 2017: Global Health, Social Entrepreneurship and Faith-inspired Communities
July 1, 2017
This final report of the 3rd Ahimsa Forum that occurred on June 28-30, 2017 at Les Pensières Centre for Global Health in Annecy, France, summarizes three days of presentations, rich dialogue, and in depth discussions. The spirit of 2017’s AHIMSA forum took inspiration from the UN’s sustainable development goals, or SDGs. The forum covered a wide range of topics and ideas. Ethics were a strong theme throughout the forum, while innovation and leadership were discussed in almost every session. Different aspects of global health, including access and quality were discussed, with specific community examples providing insights into current programs and highlighting gaps. With a young global population, education emerged as central to all these themes.
