A Principled Approach to Solving Global Challenges – Sovaida Ma’ani Ewing

May 2, 2020, in Videos > Talk, by

In this presentation hosted by the Wilmette Institute, Sovaida Ma’ani Ewing explores how 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, Sovaida shares how we can employ long-term, proactive thinking, and apply a set of global ethics that we identify and agree upon.

Sovaida Ma’ani Ewing is an international lawyer, author and the founding director of The Center for Peace and Global Governance (CPGG), a virtual think tank and online forum that pools and proposes principled solutions to pressing global problems through publications, podcasts, lectures, workshops and targeted consulting. Her latest book is Building a World Federation: The Key to Resolving Our Global Crises. For further information about her work please visit her blog: collectivesecurity.blogspot.com.
