Towards a fairer, more peaceful world

Kofi Annan: The world I’m working to create

The Chair and founder of the Kofi Annan Foundation shares his vision for a fairer, more peaceful world. We have, for too long, been consuming the resources of the world as if there were no tomorrow. We need to create a world that is equitable, stable, and where the needs of the individual are at the centre of our efforts.
