Event description

Description

FalconX is collaborating with Ideal Village to host a one-day conference on Empowerment of Women - 2018 at Stanford, University on June 26th, from 8:00am - 8:00pm.

Our goal is to develop “Ideal Villages” where the essential needs of the rural community in Water, Healthcare, Education, Energy, Sustained Livelihoods, & Sanitation are fulfilled thru the application of affordable and effective solutions - giving due consideration to eco-sustainability and self-reliance and with the active involvement of local community stakeholders. "When the power of love exceeds the love of power, this entire world will become an Ideal Village" - let's take another step towards that goal....

There were two past Ideal Village conferences at Stanford, with themes of Innovation (2016) and Collaboration (2017). This year's conference theme is Empowerment of Women.
