Though there are multiple paths to addressing the needs of our human family, many of the most impactful efforts start with the recognition of a problem, an innovative idea, and passionate and motivated people. But what are the skills, perspectives and talents needed to drive humanitarian efforts when passion alone is not enough? This World Café session invites students, community leaders and Opus Prize recipients from around the globe to take up the question of how humanitarian efforts are managed in day-to-day experiences. Key questions in this forum will include: the challenges of finding funding; managing relationships between governments, communities and other key stakeholders; creating and sustaining infrastructure; and addressing cross-cultural issues.
