Hey, G7! WHAT'S THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY?: In cooperation with the Leaders of the G7
Twenty years have already passed. 1998. At that time, I was thinking of an idea to mark the arrival of the 3rd millennium, which was just poking its nose around the corner. I was 26 years old. The 20th century had been the scene of the most atrocious wars and crimes that history had ever known. I was afraid the 21st century would be worse. It was then that I got some insight from a book-interview between Bill Clinton, American president of the first world superpower, and the young people of the entire world. Léonard, a friend at the time, suggested that I broaden the discussion to include all the G7 Heads of State. And so, this exchange, unique in history, came about between those who govern and those who are governed. An exchange on the great challenges facing our common humanity. Thanks to the Internet, there were 190 correspondents and 200,000 questions addressed by the world's young people to the world's leaders. The environment, science, religion, peace... We were full of optimism. But we were far from imagining that, as soon as we entered the new millennium, a catastrophe would shake the world and our convictions. That was the 11th of September 2001. Twenty years later, the demand for peace is still burning just as strong in a world divided between a violent, dark East and a dominant, uncertain West.
