Three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr Scilla Elworthy presents a bold future vision of the world that she argues could work for everybody. Elworthy says we need a leap of consciousness to solve the crises engulfing the world, and a secure future is possible if we make the right choices. She profiles leaders who she says have displayed transformative leadership including Desmond Tutu and Aung San Suu Kyi. And she explains that everyone can find their unique way to be useful instead of worrying on the sidelines.

Elworthy set up the Oxford Research Group in 1982 to develop dialogue between nuclear policy makers and their critics. She was adviser to Peter Gabriel, Desmond Tutu, and Richard Branson in setting up The Elders and advises the boards of major international companies on future planning. She has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize three times and won the 2003 Niwano Peace prize. She also appears at the New Conversations for Peace event on Saturday, March 28.

Here, she talks to Gabrielle Rifkind, a specialist in conflict resolution with many years’ experience promoting dialogue behind the scenes, particularly in the Israel-Palestine conflict. She is director of the Middle East programme at Oxford Research Group.
