GlobaLab is beginning by focusing on three worldwide challenges that cannot be solved without solidarity: the climate crisis, violent conflicts and wars, and global economic inequalities. In order to overcome these problems, very different countries and their inhabitants must work together. Solidarity here would necessitate reciprocal support and help amongst very unequal and heterogeneous countries – between strong and weak, rich and poor, those exposed (e.g. to climate change) and those who are less affected.
