About One Shared World
Scheduled to give a talk on genetic technologies at the March 17, 2020 Singularity University global COVID summit, Jamie Metzl switched gears that morning to instead discuss what he felt was a more burning issue. Calling the COVID-19 pandemic another symptom of the dangerous mismatch between the global nature of our biggest common threats and the national way we have organized ourselves to address them, he argued that only a structural response could solve this structural problem. He then called for people around the world to come together to build this better future. The YouTube video of that talk went viral: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWrXryuO3Ow&feature=emb_title
That first meeting, held April 1, 2020, included people of many different backgrounds and levels from 23 countries on five continents, all recognizing a shared responsibility to fix our broken world. After Jamie outlined his vision for this movement’s potential, the group explored next steps and developed focused action plans to move a common agenda forward. To realize these aspirations, working groups were established to address the following questions:
- What lessons can we learn from other experiences of popular democracy and global campaigns?
