Dag Hammarskjöld for the Future
Hammarskjöld Inversio is aiming to make Dag Hammarskjöld’s legacy available to everyone, especially young people, mainly by spreading his philosophy and deeds through collaborations, events, exhibitions, publications, and lectures.
Since Dag Hammarskjöld’s ideas are still highly relevant in today’s international context, we enable and adapt his philosophies to the new circumstances that prevail.
We illustrate how we can learn from Dag’s leadership, courage and integrity, but also his ethics, his soul searching, his principles and his example.
Our task is primarily to inspire and engage the new generation to learn from Dag Hammarskjöld and to commit to his mission. Hammarskjöld Inversio incorporates his set of values into modern times.
Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was.
“We have so much to learn from Dag’s example and his view on life. His work is not done; therefore we have the responsibility to continuously work according to his values, for conflict resolution and human rights. His work has to be more accessible for the youth to carry out his mission. Hammarskjöld Inversio provides a common platform for inspiration and exchange to complete Dag Hammarskjöld’s undertaking”
