During the last 30 years, globalisation has brought new social, environmental and economic realities worldwide. Traditional forms of solidarity have evolved too and new movements advocate to place the idea of human solidarity on the agenda of global politics. These new forms of solidarity include long and short term movements that strive for greater equality and social justice. Recently, in the context of the COVID-19 global pandemic and in response to it, we are witnessing a tipping point of these new forms of international solidarity. This is indeed the right time to come together and take action to support the urgent need for solidarity.

Moderated by Cathie Burton and with an introduction by Ambassador Manuel Montobbio, this debate opened a conversation with three experts: Ms Avril Benoit, Mr Giuseppe Palmisano and Dr Raúl Acosta, for the first-ever #SOLIDACTION campaign webinar.
