VOICES Series: Tim Phillips
May 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
“We can rewire our brains to stop violence.”
In 1992, Tim Phillips co-founded Beyond Conflict, a pioneering resolution and reconciliation initiative that has positively affected democracy around the world. Beyond Conflict has achieved international recognition for its contributions to the Northern Ireland peace process, national reconciliation in El Salvador and Nicaragua, the establishment of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa, and its catalytic role in helping launch the field of transitional justice. In the private sector, Mr. Phillips was a founder of Energia Global International Ltd. (EGI), which led the development and operation of privately owned renewable energy facilities in Central and South America in the early 1990s.
The VOICES Series invites contemporary voices to challenge and inform us: artists and authors, visionaries and thought leaders, advocates of change courageous enough to hold the loveliness and sorrow of the world at once, and find the wonder in both.
