My first attraction to the GCC had little to do with this promise of possible funding that created the momentum for it’s birth. Tammy’s ambitions were more inspiring, but I mainly participated following my need for better conversations. It was and still is my conviction that better conversations are a crucial part of a healthier society. So I need to understand what defines a good conversation. A complex quest it turned out to be. And the journey led me into many unforeseen experiences.
