The Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations is honored to host David LaMotte, an award-winning songwriter, speaker, and author. He has recorded 11 CDs and performed 2500 concerts on 5 continents. LaMotte suspended his music career in 2008 to accept a Rotary World Peace Fellowship, earning a master’s degree in International Studies, Peace, and Conflict Resolution from the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. As part of that program, he spent three months in rural Andhra Pradesh, India, working with a Gandhian development organization. David’s most recent book is Worldchanging 101: Challenging the Myth of Powerlessness.

David speaks and leads workshops world wide, including speaking at the Scottish Parliament building and leading peacemaker training workshops in Zambia. He is a consultant on peace and justice issues for the North Carolina Council of Churches, and is the Clerk (chair) of the Nobel Peace Prize Nominating Task Group for the AFSC (Quakers).

Like any good first year (101) university course, David’s workshops and keynotes do not pretend to offer answers, but rather offer new ways to look at important questions. In this case, the questions are how we are called to engage the world around us and how to practically approach that. Through story and exercises he offers a framework to examine our capacity for significant impact on the world, and valuable insights on how to be effective in that effort.

RSVP for lunch.
