The past weeks and months have been a wake-up call for many of us. We understand more clearly than ever that inequality, injustice, and unsustainability are determining the ways in which we engage with each other and the planet. At the same time, the transatlantic partnership is eroding, with no effective response yet from the international community. We thus consider this current moment an urgent call for Responsible Leadership.
During the Responsible Leaders Sessions, a diverse group of leaders from across the Atlantic will embark on a process of critical reflection, questioning, and unlearning. We intend to enter not a safe but a brave space, one in which we dare to contemplate and examine uncomfortable truths. This way, we may learn to truly appreciate our differences and embrace our common values and interests, thereby contributing to the shaping of equal, just, and sustainable societies and to the re-strengthening of our bonds across the Atlantic.
