Humanity Talks are monthly events that will be held at different partner universities and other institutions around the globe, following the Humanity Summit 2023. These talks aim to continue the conversations started during the summit and explore ways to address some of the most pressing challenges facing humanity today.
The talks will bring together experts, scholars, policymakers, and thought leaders from various fields to discuss and exchange ideas on a wide range of topics, such as climate change, human rights, global health, economic inequality, and social justice. The events will be open to the public, providing an opportunity for anyone interested in these issues to learn, engage, and contribute to the ongoing dialogue.
By hosting these talks at different partner institutions around the world, Humanity Talks aims to foster a diverse and inclusive dialogue that reflects the different perspectives and experiences of people from different regions and cultures. The events will also provide an opportunity for participants to connect with like-minded individuals and build networks of support and collaboration.
In partnership with the UALG and the Imperial College we will be creating a Humanity Index, thi toll will help us monitor and evaluate and measure the impact of public policy, governance or product creation.
Creating a new index from an intersectional standpoint is urgent because it is crucial to address the blindspots and limitations of existing indices that have mainly focused on economic factors and failed to account for other dimensions of regional development.
Many regions and communities have been historically marginalized and continue to face systemic and institutionalized forms of oppression, including racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and ableism. These forms of oppression have significant impacts on the social, political, and economic development of these regions and communities. By focusing solely on economic factors, traditional indices may miss crucial dimensions of regional development, perpetuating and exacerbating existing inequalities and injustices.
Creating a new index from an intersectional standpoint can provide a more holistic understanding of regional development, one that recognizes and values the diversity and complexity of regions and communities. Such an index can help identify the unique challenges and opportunities facing each region and provide evidence-based solutions that promote equity, justice, and sustainability.
