Theme: 'The Ones Who Do'

The subject of this year's event was "The Ones Who Do". We brought together a group of visionary individuals from a variety of fields who at some point in their lives have challenged commonly held perceptions and pre-established boundaries. The Ones Who Do are individuals who dream of a different world, who find ways of making their ingenuous vision an everyday reality and who do not stop in the face of adversity. This approach to life not only redefines our perception of the world and empowers us but also highlights the effect our actions can have on others. Our choice of topic is not only local but urgent: we need to turn thought into action today.
