As many of you will know already, I am retiring this month as CEO of The Elders, after three rich and rewarding years. So I would like to use this opportunity to offer some personal reflections on the work of this wonderful organisation and its future challenges.
When I joined The Elders in 2013, the world faced many of the same problems it is confronted with today. Climate change, human
rights abuses, social and gender inequality, and armed conflict continue to pose serious political and moral challenges.
