Be the change you want to see in the World
The world is full of things we don’t like from big things like racism, hunger, bullying, and drug addiction to the very small issues we face like traffic jams, not having enough time in the day, and too much smartphone use by practically everyone. We all have a choice as to how we will handle the things that just aren’t right. Some of us will do nothing and just complain, and others on the opposite end of the spectrum will organize and do something about it. They donate their time, energy and money to solve small and big problems.
I have met a bunch of people in Tampere who decided to tackle the economic downturn in Finland in a unique way and then joined them. They decided to organize and build an event in Tampere to help companies to utilize a unique and extremely valuable resource, international talent. We have a hidden treasure of international competence right here in Finland : international talents who can contribute to the growth of companies, who can innovate new services or products or build bridges to new markets.
The amazing thing that this event does is show communities how to deal with diversity. Instead of fearing diversity, in Tampere, it is being embraced as an asset. I would say that this is the change that I want to see in the world!
If you would like to “be the change” then you can attend the event, become a sponsor of the event or just express your support of the event by becoming a fan. Twinkle will be held in Tampere on Dec. 7th and 8th for 2000 people at Tampere Talo. Hope to meet you there!
