Reflections on GCGI: Creating a Culture of Dialogue, Collaboration, and Cooperation for the Common Good
AbstractThe future is indeed fraught with environmental, socio-economic, political, and security risks that could derail the progress towards the building of ‘The Future We Want’. However, although these serious challenges are confronting us, we can, if we are serious and sincere enough, overcome them by taking risks in the interest of the common good. One thing is clear: the main problem we face today is not the absence of technical or economic solutions, but rather the presence of moral and spiritual crises. This requires us to build broad global consensus on a vision that places values such as love, generosity, and caring for the common good into socio-political and economic practice, suggesting possibilities for healing and transforming our world.
