This Call to Action is organised by The Futures Project as a contribution to the UN75 Global Conversation Initiative:

In the face of the current unprecedented global challenge, we need unprecedented solidarity, collaboration, and commitment to action. The Futures Project Call to Action brings these values, which are also at the heart of the UN@75 initiative and digital cooperation, to life. Now more than ever, we must work together on a global scale to build our shared future, through innovation, creativity, and technologies for good. I am proud to welcome The Futures Project Call to Action and its vital contribution to rising to the urgency of the moment.
