The California spirit is deeply rooted in Heidi Kuhn, CEO and Founder of ‘Roots of Peace’, an internationally acclaimed humanitarian organisation dedicated to the removal of Landmines. With the support of United Nations and the World Bank and other international organisations and governments, Heidi has been recognised by numerous world leaders including Kofi Annan, HH Pope Francis and many heads of state and government.
Heidi has always had a lifelong commitment to following in the footsteps of Peace. In her early career she owned her own television news organisation reporting for CNN and other global news organisations. An idea generated from the basement of her home and beating the odds and overcoming a terminal diagnosis of cancer, Heidi will share with us her journey from a strong background in business with a humanitarian vocation to how she inspires ordinary people to do the extraordinary. Her vision of turning “Mines to Vines” replaces the remnants of war with vineyards and orchards of peace around the world.
