                    "Be the Change that you wish to see in the world”

                                                                 Mahatma Gandhi

A meeting place for "kindred spirits” who have the courage and determination to change things and who are trying to identify formulas to do that with more traction and impact and less “uneasiness”.

This space is created to show "alternative" models, including people and organizations that in different areas and in different ways are part of the solution. They have in common that they are trying to contribute to “changing the world” starting with themselves.

My name is Ana de Andrés, I am an Economist and an Organisational Development Expert and for more than  20 years I have worked at the intersection of leadership and economic and social development at a global level.

 

Soy Ana de Andrés, Economista y experta en Desarrollo Organizacional y desde hace más de 20 años trabajo en la intersección entre el desarrollo directivo y el desarrollo económico y social a nivel global.

What I DO

Coming back from a weekend with my Fundación Marcelino Botín scholars.   They are part of a Program which aims at promoting Latin America´s development through strengthening its institutions, and specifically through creating a network of future leaders and change-makers who are highly qualified and truly committed to public service understood in a broad sense. 

Since the Program began, every year about 30-40 young leaders “pass through my hands” -and especially through my heart-.  This year we are celebrating our 10th Anniversary in Cartagena de Indias, and more than 200 alumni are coming from all over the Region.  I will be opening the Program and sharing lineup with 3 Heads of State,  amongst others.  A dream come true.

Recién llegada de Ginebra.  Deseando que a pesar de los desafíos que imponen los tiempos hayáis tenido grandes veranos y suaves retornos.  Echándoos de menos.   Casi lista para un otoño que empieza muy pronto y que nos exige ser valientes y comprometernos cada uno desde nuestra atalaya - y saliendo por tanto al menos por momentos de la trinchera - a ser parte de la solución y no del problema.

Cada vez más poderosamente consciente de las ramificaciones de la “anarquía internacional sistémica” (tomo prestada esta expresión de los expertos) y de que la ausencia de gobernanza, el menoscabo de las fuerzas “pacíficas” y una especie de alergia al diálogo generativo tiñen nuestras instituciones y espacios de debate también a nivel nacional y local, y afectan a nuestras...

Feeling proud of myself this week… Somehow, I have “fabricated” the time to escape the tyranny of action and engage on activities and conversations which I know will be very significant for me long term.  Getting ready for a new level of influence.  Among the “accomplishments” (these days less is more:), I would highlight attending a powerful presentation about the rise of neofascisms.  Truth be told, the presentation accelerated my brain particles -that was the goal, as with all the noise these days I am afraid they might freeze- but it also gave me the creeps.

In his talk, Enzo Traverso, a prominent Scholar and Historian at Cornell University, tried to respond to a -very pertinent I thought- question: which are the commonalities and the differences between the sit...
