What kind of future do we want to create? What will happen to humanity?
The wicked problems are global, so we also need globally shared values - future aims - to solve the issues. Climate change and loss of biodiversity require action. Can we create biocentric ethics instead of anthropocentric ethics? New technologies also pose challenges to ethics: we need to discuss global ethics of artificial intelligence and biotechnology, for example? What are the values of states' foreign policy? How can we overcome poverty and inequality?
