Security Mission: Global Vision

Security should no longer be thought as military, weapons, terrorism or closed borders. Nowadays, we have security threats that are beyond human reach. These threats no longer have a single solution nor a single country can fully address them.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, it was unimaginable  that nations would have to act in close collaboration and with a common goal to provide food security, access to water, a clean environment and a health system to close the breach of inequality.

In a fishbowl setting GDL members and experts aimed at understanding these new global security threats that require other ways of cooperation.
