The crises of the last three years have shown that the golden era of peace, security and prosperity in which we have lived since the end of the Cold War may be coming to an end, according to Professor Yuval Noah Harari. According to the TOP SPEAKER of the Impact'22 congress, wars, diseases, and poverty threatening the world will be prevented by new global rules that will order the relations between states without undermining their national individuality.
The debate "Addressing the state of the world. The time for rebuilding", which was preceded by an address by Professor Yuval Noah Harari, Israeli historian and philosopher, author of the bestseller ‘Sapiens. From Humans to Gods' took place during the Impact'22 congress in Poznań. Its main topic was building a world order resilient to crises and based on common values, liberal democracy and supranational solidarity.
According to participants in the discussion, the world is at a turning point. The Covid-19 pandemic and war in Ukraine made it a major challenge for governments and international organizations to ensure national, energy, food, health, and cyber security.
"Global values are under attack, even though we have not been given an alternative to them. The world is to be reduced to a network of friendly fortresses, except that fortresses are by definition not friendly. This is a recipe for disaster,” Prof. Harari assesesd.
