Despite the data privacy law known as GDPR[1] which empowers online users to protect their private information, I blindy click “I accept” roughly twenty times a day, just to get access to what I want and quickly. It’s not a sign of trust, but rather me resigning to the fact that I won’t have the time to read, let alone understand the terms of conditions. - Annika Hartmann de Meuron, Managing Director of Ethical Leadership in Business, reflects on digital privacy and its implications.

Rainer Gude, TEDx

"Through my work and my own personal journey, I have come to realize that there are a great many things I cannot control, but the little I can control, that I can change, is in me. There are two tools in particular that allowed me to start with myself and to navigate my way through this complex world. These two tools are …. Silence …. And Love." - Rainer Gude is the Strategic Partnerships Manager for IofC Switzerland. Read more about his reflections on silence and love.
