“Multilateralism is under fire, precisely when we need it most”, this 2018 statement by UN Secretary General Guterres seems more pressing now than ever before. The Covid-19 pandemic, an escalating climate crisis and protracted conflicts around the world underscore the exceptional urgency for more global coordination and multilateral solutions. Yet, today’s global order is marked by an increased reliance on unilateralism and zero-sum calculations. Major international climate and security agreements are in jeopardy and put our planet and the future of younger generations at risk. On October 23rd 2020 these issues were at the heart of a public online event with experts from a wide range of fields who will engage with questions, visions and ideas from young people from around the world. The event was a joint project by the Global Solutions Initiative and 1014. The activities will complement the ongoing UN global dialogue initiative, UN75.
