Why are you a world federalist?
“I am a World Federalist because I believe in global solutions for world problems, because we are all in this, and we cannot solve the world’s problems without taking decisions at the global level and not based on political whim.”
What is the future you are working towards?
“I am working towards a future where multilateralism is helping all the states to solve complex challenges that it could not overcome on its own.”
