Guiding Pillars

Peace is more than the absence of war; it is also the absence of poverty, inequality and unemployment.

Therefore, our pillars aim to:

  1. Build cooperation, tolerance and shared values;
  2. Build inclusive economic growth;
  3. Preserve the environment; and
  4. Share knowledge for human progress.
