Now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to the children of the world.”


paraphrased from Dr Martin Luther King

“If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.”


Mahatma Gandhi

Euro-Connects 2017


My dream is that we concentrate on how much we have in common and not how much divides us.


My dream is that this is not a dream

My dream is that this is the beginning

Let’s make my dream - a reality - together


To grow                                         

and grow  

and grow  ….…………

and grow

Martin Luther King’s “I had a dream” speech - was an inspiration 50 years ago and is an inspiration today.

 

Mahatma Gandhi addressed his nation in 193?.  His views on peaceful change were an inspiration to that generation and are an inspiration and lesson today:  ”You must be the change you wish to see in the world”


Nelson Mandela - an incredible man!  His whole demeanour through terrible suffering are lessons to all of us:


“There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children.”

I am calling on everyone who believes in the future for our children and young people today, to come together to support a Community Youth Project either in your own back yard or in a community with very different needs.


They need hope and inspiration.  They need your time.  They need you to listen.


Euro-Connects is the event which fulfils both your business needs and the needs of society.

“Be a bush if you can't be a tree. If you can't be a highway, just be a trail. If you can't be a sun, be a star. For it isn't by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.”


Martin Luther King

Barratt Junior High School,

Philadelphia, 26 October 1967

The themes of

Wind, Earth, Fire and Water

have been set for Community Youth Groups to interpret on their projects.

Travel and internationalism are in my blood.  From my first trip to Germany at the age of 14, I was shown friendship, compassion and care by strangers which shaped my life.  That was in the day when there was a barrier between East and West Germany.  Those barriers were torn down by the people and they should never again be built.


The best education is travel - the education of life.  Languages, cultures, beliefs and traditions are to be valued and respected.  They are fascinating aspects of life and history, to be learnt from - in harmony without division and without prejudice.


From a background of aviation linked with wide experience in international tourism and marketing Euro-Connects was set up with the first meeting being held in 1997.   As the first person to bring together airlines and airports for the first Regional Route Planning Conference -” Euro-Connects” followed by “AsiaConnects”, Judy Pompermaier revolutionised decision making for regional development by the airlines and airports.  The world has moved on since then so now we are ready for the next stage to bring together key cities, communities and industries.


Today’s  real decision makers are the consumers - the communities - the people.     


The future for Euro-Connects and Euro-Connects 2017 reflects these changes and is based on who I am and what I believe in.


There are three men who have totally inspired me through different phases of my life:

 Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela  


As long as you believe in a future based on love and harmony, not hatred and division - join me at Euro-Connects -

 for business and community working together


Euro-Connects has been conceived to inspire, support, nurture and provide opportunities  to achieve and fulfil dreams.
