At the beginning of the 21st century, the world is facing challenges that are interconnected, including wars, terrorism, (forced) migrations, global inequalities and asymmetries, climate change etc.
The fundamental constraints to an equitable standard of living for everyone are neither a shortage of resources nor a lack of technological innovations. The main impediments are a lack of political
will to reform a global institutional order that produces foreseeable yet avoidable power asymmetries. Whereas on our side, it is potentially experiences of disempowerment and/or the lack of solidarity, which influence our abilities to imagine a just world
and to dare enough to play the role of change-makers.
