Leader bio: Je suis Desiré Adon, je suis Ivoirien, gestionnaire de projets de mon état, je suis passionné par les actions communautaires. Je suis directeur d’un ONG locale en Côte D’ivoire. Pour moi la participation de la communauté au développement doit être une obligation dans nos pays. Pour y parvenir, je forme une armée de volontaires engagés pour le développement durable et la paix. Je suis formateur en entrepreneuriat et à la gouvernance associative. J’ai lancé une carrière d’écrivain avec un premier livre paru en novembre 2018. J’aime beaucoup l’innovation et je crois que tout peut se réaliser dans la solidarité. Je suis activiste pour une société civile dynamique dans mon pays. A MasterPeace, je milite pour que nous créons ensemble des concepts pour promouvoir la paix et qui peuvent devenir des labels applicables dans tous les pays. J’ai plein d’idées folles (rire) et beaucoup d’énergie pour les réaliser avec chaque personne sur cette planète.
