This webinar series consists of 3 dialogue webinars. You may sign up for 1, 2, or all three of them at once.
1. "The Coronavirus Pandemic: Stepping Stone, or Stumbling Block?"
Tuesday, April 7, 8:30 pm Eastern
While our experience with the coronavirus pandemic is extremely painful, it also provides us a rich opportunity to build a more peaceful and secure world. Together, we will explore a few of these opportunities.
2. "A Principled Approach to Solving Global Challenges"
Tuesday, April 14, 8:30 pm Eastern
One of the opportunities inherent in the global challenges we face, whether it is the coronavirus pandemic, climate change, or the threat of nuclear war, is the recognition that short-term, reactive, solutions no longer serves us. Instead, we must employ long-term, proactive thinking, and apply a set of global ethics that we identify and agree upon.
3. "Collective Threats Require a New System of Global Governance"
Tuesday, April 21, 8:30 pm Eastern
The current crisis is highlighting the degree to which we are interdependent and connected. While many of our greatest threats (like the coronavirus pandemic) are collective, we lack the necessary global institutions to make authoritative and binding decisions and to enforce them. Together we will explore the kinds of institutions we need to create to ensure humanity’s collective well-being.
