The Dhillon Marty Foundation will hold the State of the Community #ShareYourHumanity conference in Paris from 18 to 30 June in partnership with UNESCO's Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme.

The State of the Community #ShareYourHumanity conference will be held not only to remember past social revolutions, such as May 1968 in that same city, but what path we need to design in face of the opportunities and challenges presented by the technology century. The program will include panel discussions, arts and cultural events. #ShareYourHumanity, whose title is derived from the student competition Phrase of the Year, held during the 2017 State of the Community conference, will bring together change-makers to investigate solutions for sustainable, democratic, inclusive societies, anchored in the knowledge provided by the social and human sciences, for our all the more interconnected world.

Exhibition: Empreinte Civique
Local interactive exhibition will take place simultaneously in different locations around the world. Individuals and institutions are invited to join as a partner to spread the message on importance of engaged citizens for sustainable and inclusive communities. Physical exhibition will also take place in various locations around Paris. Part of the exhibition will be to deliver a Daily Print, a small newspaper format distributed every day from June 16 to June 30. We invite partners from all over the world to distribute locally our Daily Print during the exhibition.
