Oscar Arias Keynote Topics
The Struggle for Peace & Justice
In a hostile environment where peace and justice do not reign, no country in the world can prosper successfully. In this keynote speech, Oscar Arias, former President of Costa Rica and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, will speak about the importance of peace and justice, emphasizing the difficulty of obtaining them and how easy it is to lose them. He will talk about how he managed to get seven 1987 Central American presidents to sign the Arias Peace Plan, managing to establish peace in the region - something that seemed impossible at the time - and that earned him the Nobel Prize. We will also talk about the main dangers of fighting for these two essential freedoms and how we can help others achieve them.
Moral Leadership in Today’s World
Will poverty in the world ever end? Can we stop climate change? Will we stop terrorism and ethnic conflicts? These are all issues and conflicts that still exist today and on which politicians and leaders of every nation very often discuss but on which no solution has yet been found. To solve it, you need leaders who care about the world and not only for themselves and who are able to navigate the complexity of our challenges. Ultimately, politicians who develop moral leadership. In this keynote speech, Oscar Arias, former president of Costa Rica and one of the first leaders ever to apply moral leadership, will talk about what is necessary to apply it as successfully as he did, achieving the first peace period ever in Central America.
Human Development & Human Security
Without security there is no human development. A truth as simple as that has never been so difficult to achieve. In this keynote speech, Oscar Arias, former President of Costa Rica and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will explain the importance of security for human development to grow anywhere on the planet. Thanks to all his international experience, Arias can give a unique vision of the best policies and most effective actions to ensure that security is increased in a region, to promote successful human development.
