What We Do

The world has changed markedly since Nelson Mandela founded The Elders in 2007. 

Discover how The Elders contribute to addressing some of the challenges of leadership, peace-building, inequality, exclusion and injustice in a rapidly-changing world. 

Gender Equality and Intergenerational Dialogue 

Equality for women and girls is a cornerstone of the Elders’ commitment to securing dignity and rights for all, informing our priorities across every aspect of our work. We also seek to empower young people and promote intergenerational dialogue across our initiatives.

As Kofi Annan said: “you are never too young to lead, and never too old to learn.”
