And the journey toward The Good Summit was born.

Somewhere in the historic annals of Trinity College Dublin’s House 27, c.2014, a bright young energetic Amr Dawood burst through the door of the Methodist Chaplain, the older, almost as energetic, and possibly more enigmatic Julian (Jools) Hamilton. Amr entered as a leader in the Trinity Muslim society asking the Christian chaplain for help with a charity auction ending Ramadan. An immediate friendship was born that crossed barriers of race, religion, ethnicity and age, and led to a deep appreciation and respect for each other.

Their friendship was strengthened when after the horrific attacks in Paris 2015, Amr & Jools were invited by the Students Union to jointly address a peace vigil in the vast front square. In front of over 500 students holding candles to disperse the darkness of the creeping winter, they jointly called on people to remember victims and overcome darkness. Together calling for a better world.

After that evening was over, Jools and Amr conspired dreams of a better world, and decided they had no choice – they had a responsibility to make positive change real.  

And The Good Summit was born

The early days of The Good Summit was born out of a passionate belief that change is possible. That humanity can do better. Goodness is not an automatic response, it takes work, effort, partnership and sweat … but it is worth it.

Jools and Amr spawned the dream, and invited others to join the adventure of getting people together who wanted to see the world work differently. Now in it’s fifth year, Amr has moved on to many other amazing social enterprise adventures, while Jools heads up the organization, keeping the flames burning. Their connection remains and the passion for humanity remains, and they are overjoyed that the Good Summit provides a natural realm where people can be inspired to think and act differently. The dream of The Good Summit is in small ways, you can form habits and practices that help to make this world a more just and fair place for us all. Whether in education, government, NGO, charity, religious or community activism, All Of Us Together can form habits and practices that make the world a better place.
