– What kind of world do we want to create? What would your ideal world look like in 25 years the UN 100th anniversary?
– The world where there is no war. The world where everyone is equal and has equal rights. The world where the Earth takes care of the people, and the people take care of the Earth, preserving and not destroying natural resources. The world where every day we strive for harmony, goodness, quality development and transformation.
– What would you advise the UN Secretary-General to do to address the global challenges?
– To overcome global trends, I would advise the UN Secretary General to conduct an active information policy for different target audience\generations, with regard to age categories. Each of us will take into consideration all that we believe is necessary and important for ourselves, for our current state and the situation in general.
