‘Boundaries? I’ve never seen one. But I’ve heard they exist in some people’s heads.’ Thor Heyerdahl.
Humanity has gradually organized itself, from scattering and individual struggles for survival since the emergence of Homo Sapiens, to increasingly larger and better structured collective living spaces. Thus we have moved from the small collective spaces of the tribe, the family and the village to cities, regions, states and the federation of states. Finally, the last century saw the birth of the first major planetary political organizations: the League of Nations in 1920 and the United Nations Organization in 1945. Now humanity must continue to create a global political world space, supported by rules and institutions whose center of gravity is to liberate the talents of everyone. The North is what we call the “One Humanity World” where each person acquires a new central value.
The world is at a major crossroads toward exponential progress. Progress through the application of artificial intelligence systems and the dissemination of knowledge through open communication on a planetary scale are increasingly promising. We must ensure that the entire development of artificial intelligence is fully at the service of humanity, and we must work towards politically structuring the world, overcoming divisions between groups, to achieve a global planetary constitution. States fulfill the great function of organizing collective life in the various corners of the planet. They are now called upon to contribute and encourage their citizens to transcend its boundaries and make the effort to become, within valuable diversity, part of one whole: humanity. The world of “One Humanity” strives for the creation of this global political space without fragmentation and based on the empowerment of each of its members.
It is essential to set the right goal. The arrival time is a secondary variable. Participating in wills in this noble endeavor is essential. We, the people, are the force.

As part of the event, Fundacion Onuart will host this first global dialogue on the relationship between human intelligence and artificial intelligence for better management of public affairs, paving the way for new private sector initiatives in favor of positive global development driven by innovation and inclusiveness. Artificial intelligence at the service of humanity can drive diversity, respect and progress for all through innovation. Moving forward in a strong public-private partnership is essential for this. The meeting will serve to deepen, manifest and visualize this partnership. Its mission is to increase the value of art as a catalyst for dialogue. Through the arts, the Foundation promotes debate at the highest level to inspire tolerance and understanding between nations and cultures within all international organizations, striving for a more creative and less conventional approach to every negotiation and debate.
