Recent developments remind us how highly the world is interconnected today. Human security, adaption to and mitigation of climate change, energy markets, food security are just some of many issues calling for united global action. The focus of economic and political power tends to shift towards the East, while others still see the United States as the leading global player in the future. Europe's role, however, seems to decline.
Based on the experiences of the past years, we want to reflect on whether value-based sustainable solutions are possible on the global level and if so, which values should be the basis for sustainable solutions. What can different actors contribute to this potential new set of values? Which values demand for reconsideration and possible calibration to adapt them to the requirements of the 21st century? We will discuss these questions in dialogue with our transatlantic partners and also with representatives from Asia.
