From Unexpected Voices Come Remarkable Ideas

World Speech Day 2023

Shared Ideas for a Better World

From climate change to global poverty, to wars and energy crises – it come sometimes feel as though we look out on a world beset by insurmountable problems. But if we believe in humanity, if we believe in the pursuit of happiness and progress for the common good, we will also recognise that we have the tools to meet all these challenges. We have compassion. We have hope. We have ideas – we can imagine new ways to live and come together, new vistas onto a brighter future. Our shared ideas can build a better world. All it takes is a voice: one voice.
