Representatives from more than 100 NGOs in partnership with UNESCO participated in the conference. Its theme, “The challenge of of the digital revolution for NGOs”, is as rich as it is complex. This theme was examined in great detailin several sessions and round table discussions of notable depth. Our fundamental responsibility as human beings was reaffirmed, as much individually as communally, against artificial intelligence. Artificial Intelligence has already demonstrated, in fact, to be capable of making some choices independently from human will, moving towards transhumanism.
On 17 December 1996 Chiara Lubich was in Paris to receive the UNESCO Prize for Peace Education. Twenty years later, in collaboration with the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to UNESCO, New Humanity remembers the founder of the Focolare Movement (from whose spirituality New Humanity draws its inspiration) with a cultural manifestation under the patronage of the UNESCO (the United Nations' Agency for Education, Science and Culture) entitled: “Reinventing Peace: Education towards a Humanism Based the Unity of the Human Family”.
