Week Nine :: August 22–30

The Future We Want, The World We Need: Collective Action for Tomorrow’s Challenges

A Week in Partnership with the U.N. Foundation

What will the world look like over the coming decades, and how can we work together to better prepare for the future? From climate change to new technologies, the world faces countless interrelated and fast-moving drivers of economic, political and social change.

  • Where are the most important opportunities to realize a more equitable and sustainable world? What are our biggest collective challenges?
  • During the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, we examine what we can learn from international communities and partnerships driving innovative solutions to global issues and identify tools that communities can use to learn from one another and drive collective action.

Interfaith Lecture Theme :: The Future We Want, The World We Need

In a constantly evolving world, what needs to change, what can change, and what do we and all peoples actually need — not only to survive, but to sustain life and to thrive? In this week, we will ask these humanitarian questions and more: questions that make us think; questions that trigger other questions. Please come and be part of the conversation.
