This platform was created at a critical moment in contemporary history – in the midst of the global corona virus pandemic essentially closing down much of our planet and making clear for the first time the extent to which the current global system of governance is incapable of counteracting effectively planetary disasters.

Until now we were somehow able to ignore the rapidly accelerating climate crisis and its pending reverberations. We also managed to ignore the unsustainability of the global economy, based on endless financial speculation and debt. But the pandemic forced many governments to reach such unmanageable levels of debt in order to address the health and financial crisis of millions, that global economy is expected to collapse as whole sectors are frozen and driven toward bankruptcy.[1] The supply chains are broken, including for basic medications. The virus knowns no boundaries. No country can manage it alone. We see clearly th need for global cooperation and a complex approach to governance.

Behind all that is the need to reconsider our fundamental values and ultimate purpose as human beings. This period of forced isolation is a unique opportunity to read, to study, to reflect, to pray and to meditate on what kind of future we want for ourselves, our families, our communities, our nations, and for the world. With global communication we can now carry out meaningful conversations with others and to help people see the positive side of this tribulation.

Many scientists are now saying that when the pandemic is over, our world will not be the same, nor can it possibly return to business as usual. What kind of economic and governance system will emerge and how will it become planetarily sustainable?

In the current situation, this platform publishes materials that reflect a growing global movement toward conscious interdependence, unity in diversity and a more just and sustainable global society. We follow global social, environmental and educational processes that are rapidly changing our world as we know it.

The platform opens space for dialogue with young people, as well as all thinking people, regarding the role of each of us in these intensive processes. It emphasizes practical approaches, based on meaningful communication, spiritual values, and a reasonable aspiration toward justice – approaches that develop character and a sense of responsibility, offer a concrete vision, and develop skills for citizenship in an interdependent world.
