2018 Aurora Dialogues Berlin “Humanity in a Fragile World: Partnering for Change” will take place in the capital of Germany on December 11 – 12, 2018. Distinguished humanitarians, academics, philanthropists, business leaders and members of civil society will focus on multilateral, multi-stakeholder approaches in facilitating timely responses and finding sustainable solutions to the world’s most pressing humanitarian crises.
The event in Berlin will be part of the Additional Aurora Dialogues Programming that includes international conferences and public lectures aiming to bring together leaders with the unique expertise and contribute to finding solutions to the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. In keeping with the spirit of the Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity, the Aurora Dialogues shine a light on the people who are working to address today’s atrocities in a real and substantial manner and seek to identify ideas that will deliver tangible change.
The inaugural Aurora Dialogues were held on April 23, 2016 in Matenadaran, Yerevan. Participants, including Aurora Prize Selection Committee members Hina Jilani, Shirin Ebadi and Gareth Evans, offered their views on the global refugee crisis, the role of women in the humanitarian community, and the role of the media in bringing humanitarian crises to the world’s attention.
