We live in an age where unfortunately the number of humanitarian crises is escalating. Poverty, climate change, population growth, biodiversity and species loss, disease, and conflicts with increasingly dangerous weapons, which leave huge numbers of our 21st Century human community destitute, hopeless and helpless.
In order to meet these challenges and ensure our future is one of prosperity, opportunity and human dignity for all we require an attitude of shared responsibility for global problems, a respect and empathy for our neighbours around the world, a mind-set of togetherness and fraternity across our global community.
In order to achieve this we need leadership, which can inspire change and galvanise the international community to work together, putting others before themselves.
