Mr. Hannes Siebert, Co-founder of Peace Appeal Foundation & Board Member of CSI, Lebanon.
I've had the privilege of working with Mahmoud Ramadan / Playmaker since the beginning of the Syrian conflict. His visionary thinking and 360 degree perspectives led to many groundbreaking innovations in a devastating unfolding conflict that caused unmeasurable human suffering. The CSI/SI that he jointly designed and initiated, launched "peace assets" networks and created "echo system" which opened new windows and possibilities for civil society interventions during the conflict.
