Why 6 Degrees? Because there are no separations; there are only connections. Car il est temps.

Le monde est en crise. We thought we were heading towards more inclusive societies. Instead, we are at risk of regressing to cruder and more exclusionary notions of belonging. 6 Degrés traite le titre qui se trouve sur la première page de toutes nos vies. It brings thinkers, doers, artists, politicians and civil society leaders together to talk about what is really happening in the world. Using bold methods, we’ll recast old ideas and language that are failing, and propose radical, practical solutions. C’est le moment pour 6 Degrés.

Founding Circle
