By Dignity, We Mean:

Our intrinsic worthiness, as well as recognition of the same in our fellow human beings and in nature.

Dignity is that sense of one’s own value and wholeness that is the precondition for:

  • self-empowered choice
  • respect for others
  • responsible stewardship

Why focus on Dignity

So much of what we are witnessing today —

  • hatred
  • poverty and suffering
  • wastefulness
  • degradation of the environment
  • cruelty to living creatures
  • profligacy with our precious resources

— is the result of a crisis in dignity.

Dignity Overlooked

In the global conversation, dignity is often overlooked.

If a tree is perceived as having value only as an asset on a balance sheet — useful once it is chopped down and converted into a commodity — then its proper dignity and true value are not under consideration.

This same misleading metric has been applied to humans, other living beings, and to nature itself.
We are witnessing its effects now.

Taj Mahal Hotel, Delhi

Our forum will take place at The Taj Mahal Hotel is a five-star luxury hotel located in the very heart of New Delhi. On Number One Mansingh Road, it stands as tribute to timeless hospitality and service, complementing the broad leafy boulevards of Delhi’s chief architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens.

Engaging Distinguished Leaders

Leaders who have the courage to take a powerful stand for kindness, respect and dignity

No one takes a stand for cruelty; however, our current extractive economic models allow and even encourage cruelty to grow, often invisibly. Dignity is lost precisely in this way. But not forever. Dignity can always be reclaimed, and so restored.

This Forum is a focused facilitated engagement of effective world leaders in:

  • Spirituality and Religion
  • Science and Technology
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Governance and Community
  • Environment and Ecosystems
  • Entertainment and Communications
  • Education and Training
  • Culture and the Arts
  • Business and Entrepreneurship

 

Who is Invited?

World Dignity Forum is by invitation only.

We gather to honor, explore, bring forth and accelerate solutions that restore dignity to people, to animals and to our environment.

Each presenter is a distinguished leader selected for:

  • burning resolve to make a meaningful difference
  • exemplary service
  • diligently and benevolently spreading wisdom
  • motivating positive change
