"We as humans have a great challenge right now: we can go on as we are - and if we do, it’s clear that life as we know it will soon be untenable.

Alternatively, we can change. Change begins at home, with us. Actually, with me.
So if I want peace in the world,


I need to start at home.
Perhaps that’s what I really long to do -
To find my true purpose in life.
To know what I’m here for.
To become who I really am."


            Scilla Elworthy, from her book Peace begins with me

Learn how you can create change in 2017

Over five remarkable days you will learn practical steps you can take right now to start building a world that works for everyone. This summit is about citizen engagement. You, an ordinary citizen with extraordinary commitment, will be motivated and empowered by experts and change makers like three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Scilla Elworthy. You can create evolutionary change. Now.

Lose fear and be inspired

Fear comes from not knowing how to change a situation. Fear comes from feeling powerless. Our experts will show you how to work on yourself so you have the capacity to create change.You will get the knowledge to empower you and the vision to inspire you to take practical action now.

Connect with community

You are not alone. There are thousands of women all around the world who, like you, want to create a better future right now. This is your community.

Who We Are

We are a global multi-dimensional platform for transformational education, connection and synergistic collaboration of conscious women leaders around the world. We have over
8 years of experience in training, coaching, mentoring and connecting women leaders from five continents.

Why We Are Doing This

At GIFEW we personally feel now it is more important than ever for us as citizens to step up and connect together, to collaborate to make our societies just, sustainable and united.
We believe we cannot move forward unless we move forward together.


Our context-based work allows organizations and people to see the hidden constraints within their own thinking that have dramatically limited the effectiveness of the people, resources, and technology that they already have. We make visible the glass ceiling that has limited the pace of their evolution and ultimately put a lid on what they can achieve. Our approach leads to PERMANENT alterations that save our clients thousands and, in some cases, millions of dollars and has them recoup hours they would have otherwise invested in more typical information-based training programs.

"Green Hectares Noble Cause is to “Change Our World”! Unstoppable Conversations was the vehicle that has transformed us and we have been able to completely change the way we operate internally and externally because we were honest about finding our Default Thinking and find illumination in our Noble Cause. The methodology and leadership that Vik Maraj and Kevin Gangel helped us discover in Unstoppable Conversations was instrumental in our transformation! Thank you for all you do.”

Wendy Schneider, Executive Director, Green Hectares
