Bentley/TIME Leadership Forum, April 25, 2007 : GlobalGiants.com

'We're Turning to a Time of Hope ... and Moving to a Time of Action'

BENTLEY COLLEGE


WALTHAM, Mass., April 26 -- "We are in a time when great frustration is turning into a time of hope and we are also moving to a time of action," said keynote speaker Jeffrey D. Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, speaking at the standing-room-only Bentley College 2007 Leadership Forum, the third in an annual collaboration with TIME Magazine in Waltham, Massachusetts.

At one point, directing his remarks to the Tomorrow25 -- a group of high school students honored at the Forum as "leaders of tomorrow," Sachs said, "You're the ones who will have to fulfill some very deep hopes -- the hope to build a world without poverty, without hunger and without disease."

This year's Leadership Forum theme was, The Business of Healing our World. "We desperately want a world at peace," said Sachs, a world that is not lived with an "us versus them" mentality -- and "a world with a safe and sustainable environment."
