LA PACE MONDIALE, TRAMITE UN LETTO
E' possibile la pace nel mondo? Noi diciamo si! Ispirato dal bed-in di John Lennon del 1969 ad Amsterdam, realizzato per fare luce sul tema della pace mondiale, Bedtalks è il più grande e gratuito evento in grado di mettere in connessione fra loro persone straordinarie, impegnate su un cambiamento positivo del pianeta. Bedtalks offre una piattaforma che permette agli innovatori di sviluppare ulteriormente le proprie idee, le proprie iniziative ed i propri progetti semplicemente invitandoli a confrontarsi gli uni con gli altri, ispirandosi a vicenda, imparando dal prossimo, dando così vita a nuove collaborazioni, supportando e incoraggiando ogni visitatore a partecipare attivamente ai confronti con le proprie idee, background e capacità. Come si è sviluppata questa idea? Continuate a leggere!

Fatuma Abdulkadir Adan
Adan was born to parents who were from two warring tribes in Marsabit, Northern Kenya. After her training as a lawyer, she returned to her hometown in order to promote peace between the conflicting Borana Oromo, Gabra and Rendille peoples. In 2003, she founded Horn of Africa Development Initiative, a non-governmental organization she uses to foster peace and advocate for education in Kenya.
Through the Horn of Africa Development Initiative, Adan launched a programme called “Shoot to score, not to Kill”, that uses soccer to engage Kenyan youths in advocacy for peace.
In January 2011, Adan received the Stuttgart Peace Prize for “combining soccer and emancipation”. In 2013 she was invited to talk about her work with the Horn of Africa Development Initiative at the Geneva Peace Talks on 20 September 2013. The talks were organised by the United Nations and other groups for the International Day of Peace.
Bibian Mentel is the reigning World Champion Paralympic Snowboarder and Netherland’s Sportswoman of the year. Bibian has battled cancer 4 times and was forced to amputate her leg as a result. Despite losing her limb due to cancer she was back on the slopes within just 7 months. Today this World Champion is fighting for kids with physical disabilities to be able to play extreme sports through her Mentelity Foundation.
Eddie Jonker (1920) is an ‘Engelandvaarder’, a Dutch honoree title for for all men and women, who during WWII escaped from occupied territory to England by crossing the North Sea by a twelve foot boat to join the Allied forces so as to continue to fight against Germany.
A large number of men and women, however, were killed or arrested on their way to England. Some were shot, most were deported to concentration camps.
After the war Jonker remained to be an instructor on the airbase Soesterberg. Eddie Jonker was closely involved with establishing the Museum of Engelandvaarders in 2015 to commemorate all Engelandvaarders.
