Invitation: Registration open for OneShared.World’s 2021 Global Interdependence Summit!

27 August, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of Dr. Jamie Metzl and members of One Shared World (OSW), it is my pleasure to invite you to a summit that highlights global interdependence (see below). 

OSW was established shortly after the outbreak of the last pandemic to highlight a united humanity that must work together - also a concept that has been promoted by Health Information For All (HIFA), since its inception in 2006.  

See you at the summit and best wishes,

Enku

| Rise or Fall Together: Harnessing Our Mutual Responsibilities to Solve Global Challenges |

| REGISTER | https://oneshared.world/live/

As the Delta variant spreads across the world, a global end to the pandemic still seems far from clear. A recent climate change report provides a grim prognosis without an actionable agenda. Fueled by the flames of the pandemic and climate change, poverty and inequality continue unabated.

Why, why, and why? 

Why aren’t we able to adequately address these issues and take action? How can we come together to make a difference? Recognizing the mutual responsibilities of our deep global interdependence is not charity or idealism but, instead, the best available path toward building a safer future for all.

On Thursday, September 23, our second annual global interdependence summit [https://oneshared.world/live/] will bring together some of the world’s most inspiring people, including former Prime Minister of Australia Kevin Rudd, WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan, global business leader Ajay Banga, civil society leader Naina Lal Kidwai, musician Arturo O’Farrill, African Leadership Institute CEO Jackie Chimhanzi, and climate change expert Manish Bapna, to name just a few.

The summit will explore how we can best build a world where leaders at all levels do a far better job of balancing our narrower national, corporate, and tribal interests with our broader interests as humans sharing the same planet. The summit will develop new strategies for building an empowered global constituency representing our common humanity and for transforming a recognition of the mutual responsibilities of our interdependence to help solve our greatest common challenges. 

We hope that you will share information about the summit and the registration link widely with your networks of people and organizations. This online event is free and open to the public, but we need your help to spread the word. So please share news about the summit widely with your networks! To make that as easy as possible for you, we’ve included draft language below. Just copy that language and send it to anyone and everyone you would like to invite. 

We can’t wait to see you at the Summit!

In the meantime, please make sure to follow all things OneShared.World for the Summit on social media at @OneSharedWorld or #RiseOrFallTogether. Only together can we build OneShared.World

With warmest regards,

Jamie Metzl and the OneShared.World Team
