Global Dignity held its 4th annual Country Chair summit on June 5-6, 2014 in Oslo, Norway. Bringing together GD leadership from 23 countries, the team spent two days discussing strategy and sharing ideas to make Global Dignity Day 2014 the best one yet.

During Day one of meetings, Yan Yanovskiy from Russia and Soulaima Gourani from Denmark shared case studies on how they have successfully managed to expand Global Dignity across their country.

On day two, the Global Dignity Country Chairs visited Bleiker High School for the unveiling for the Wall of Dignity.  The group was greeted by a school band performance, the Principal and President of the Student Council.

Two of the students featured on the Wall of Dignity addressed the group, followed by Pekka Himanen (GD co-founder and Country Chair of Finland) and Raaida Mannaa (Country Chair for Colombia).
