About The Speaker

Nipun Mehta has a simple but profound mission for life: "Bring smiles in the world and stillness in my heart". At age 25 he quit his job to become a "full time volunteer." Nipun then founded ServiceSpace, a global community at the intersection of technology, volunteerism and gift-economy. ServiceSpace's recent pandemic response has showcased the unique beauty of its ecosystem, with a global social movement of community builders cultivating love, nonviolence, selfless service and compassion. Their work has reached millions, attracted thousands of volunteers, and grown into numerous community-based projects. Nipun was honoured as an "unsung hero of compassion" by the Dalai Lama and President Obama appointed him to a council for addressing poverty and inequality. Yet the core of what strikes anyone who meets him is the way he approaches life: “I want to live simply, love purely, and give fearlessly. That's me.
