Why are you a world federalist?
I am a world federalist because I believe that where you’re born shouldn’t decide the life you’ll lead. Something as arbitrary as a line drawn across a map is no excuse for a person’s standard of living and future opportunities to be lower.
What is the future you are working towards?
I am working towards a future where more effective and accountable global governance allows for all people to live happy and fulfilling lives. A world where armed conflict has been outlawed, where mass atrocities and human rights abuses are a thing of the past, and where poverty and environmental degradation no longer plague our planet.
