Building a sustainable society of the future. Economic Forum in Poland 2019
Economic forum 2019 brought people from many different countries, backgrounds, and professions together to discuss the cooperation between countries, world integration, and the future of our society.
Nowadays people need to think globally, act globally as the future of the planet is at stake.
We all have to come together to build a better world, but we need to be fast and decisive.
“Creative society is a society that is governed by mutual help, mutual systems, and mutual benefits” — Anna Korshunova
People gradually come to a joint understanding of what all of us want to achieve together and what needs to be done in terms of this positive change. This is what unites people — the wish of a better future, better world, and better life. We shouldn’t compete, but cooperate, inspire and help each other. That's what brings us all together and we are moving towards the same goal.
What unites us all? True love. What will help us achieve our goal? Being kind and humane, treating each other with sincere love and respect, and having a positive attitude. This simple recipe should be adopted in all areas of our lives — from interpersonal relationships to the way we build our businesses and economy at large.

SOCIETY. THE LAST CHANCE, May 11th, 2019. International Conference on ALLATRA IPM platform
Eszter Szabo: This forum, it brings people together and that’s how you start. You get to know the others. You understand who they are, what drives them. You understand what they do during their lives.
It is very important that the forum in the Krynica-Zdroj city brings together people not only from many countries of the world, but mainly people that have different specialisations. There are people who deal with politics, economics and other different areas in life.
In my opinion, they also like to unite people to create a better future. And because of places like this everyone can connect and everyone can come here, talk about those important issues and maybe come up with ideas which can actually be implemented.
It should be worldwide, not just Europe. Like, I am from Africa, right? Who would like to have these kinds of forums with new people, like, with everybody from all over the world? I think it would make a better change.
Exactly. Because the main source of any no biases... So, the hatred is lack of knowledge. And through forums like this we can share our experiences, we can share our values, we can learn from each other and that’s beautiful.
R: One of the goals of this economic forum is cooperation. How do you understand the word ‘cooperation’?
It is about, like, the whole world is connected. And to be successful and to have a peaceful good life, it is good to cooperate with everyone. We have only one Earth to live in. So it is very important to have good cooperation.
I think we all, like, human beings with feelings. We all want to be loved and want to be part of society. And overall, like, you know, we all have the same feelings no matter where we are from. I think that is what connects everyone together.
Since we are working as a business association and establishing contacts, maintaining contacts, maintaining networks, broadening networks, cooperation is indeed our business, put it like that. So for companies it is the most important to have cooperation. And it is, yeah, the most important stuff. I guess, people in the end want to live peacefully with each other. So I guess, that is one thing that everybody has in common despite what politicians say or try to instrumentalize. People want to meet each other, they want to, I guess, get to know each other. And that’s, I guess, the same.
What unites us is that we all want to live in a society that is healthy, thrives, where our needs are met. But I think it is important that the new generation, in particular, takes care not only about our subjective needs but also about the planet's needs. So that we passed on the society and also the planet to the next generations, in some better shape than it is now.
As individuals we need to think responsibly globally, because there are a lot of challenges we face for the community. And if you do not act now, then the future is questionable.
The challenges faced by the civilization of the planet, they are before all of us, not only a single country. We should think globally, act globally and be integrated globally as people, as companies, as countries.
How do you envision a Creative Society?
I envision it as one where we, first of all, respect human rights, the rights of minorities, respect people's freedom and build a foundation that allows people to develop and communicate freely, wherever they are.
We should be able to unite in the name of true values. Creative society is a society that is governed by mutual aid, mutual assistance, mutual benefit. But not from the point of view that only business format and any hard business, but in terms of benefits, and the ability to find those creative, positive, bringing good elements in any kind of activity, which could be directed to social assistance.
I am very grateful to the organizers of the economic forum, which gives the opportunity for politicians, public figures and businessmen to exchange experiences, thoughts and interesting projects. Today at the Ukrainian stand we are actually presenting a lot of interesting projects, as well as government institutions and businesses.
I think that each of us should remember that we need to treat everyone equally, treat everyone the same way we would like to be treated. In other words, let's not be afraid to ask, talk, communicate. This is, I think, the easiest road to success.
When people are relaxed and they show their best side, they always agree faster, rather come up with such joint positive projects and of course it is easier and more pleasant to live this way. As you believe in trust, so if we look at any developed society, we will see that basic trust in society is always a privilege there. We are working with our projects, including with our colleagues, to develop this trust in society, because if we want to go to the next stage of our evolutionary development, we simply can't do it without it, so step by step, thanks to these formats, thanks to individual projects, in fact, as I understand it, we are working together to do this.
Is it possible to conclude that by your input and satisfaction humanity can change and the consumer society can turn into a creative one, cooperative one?
I think, I hope yes!
And is it for sure? It is not, but I believe that it is necessary to try to change the world. So let us always save the civilization. As a father of two children, I don't even do it for myself, I do it for my children. But I think that humanity has a chance if we act fast enough and decisively enough. We need to try to push for changes that will allow the further functioning of human civilization.
You may know that on the basis of the ALLATRA International Public Movement, a significant event took place on the 11th of May 2019, the greatest teleconference in the history of society took place. People gathered in hundreds of conference rooms in more than 100 locations around the world, united in one Internet space. It was a huge online conference, which was initiated by the people themselves and they openly looked into the eyes of each other and raised questions about "Why do we all want to live in a world where there will be harmony, where there will be good, or live in a world where there are conflicts?". We agreed to meet at an even bigger conference and gather even more people to decide what kind of society we all want to live in.
These are people who are aware if we want more well... in order to live well, we need to limit ourselves only to the thresholds of our own home. This is not enough, and we need to make efforts to establish relationships with others and work together on the quality of rules and ideas on how to build a common comfort in life outside of our own threshold. Because in fact, we spend most of our life not in our closed territories, but in communication with people in common public spaces.
We need people from different job occupations and from different countries to talk to each other, not only because by talking to people from different disciplines, they exchange experiences and learn the perspectives and experiences of other sectors, other fields of human activity, and only if we can put together different disciplines so we can solve such complicated problems as caring for our landscape, global climate change or transforming the economy towards a more sustainable way, approach that ensures a healthy and rich life for everyone. At the same time, it is important for people from different countries to talk to each other because, frankly enough, in some countries we invent things that in other countries have long been thought of, and have been invented solutions, and we can share with each other across borders, innovation, ideas, new approaches. So we get many things moving, many things moving forward.
We really should create more joint understanding. What kind of society we are living at the moment and what are those positive changes that we have to make happen in order to keep this world going on.
What do we have the same as people? What connects us?
Humanity. I think that we all basically want to do good for other people, if we really feel that we can live that kind of life that we want to live in. And again, if not everyone feels like that at the moment we can make things happen together, but first we need that kind of joint understanding. I’m repeating that it is very important for us and in terms of our work that we really have that kind of joint understanding, where we live at the moment and what we want to achieve in terms of positive changes. People like me, we are saying that we are talking workers. We talk very much, but sometimes we really should stop and start to listen more than we are used to do. And then after we have listened first, maybe we end up talking a little bit more about our companies and different populations of different countries, societies and after that it may be a bit easier to work together, okay.
We live so close to each other that the fact that in one place there is the border of some country is not so important for our lives. It's nice that people from completely different social backgrounds, from different professions gather here and talk to each other.
It seems to me that today people, at least I am talking about the part of women I know, more than ever, have a strong desire to live in peace with everyone. The desire to love, to do good deeds. And I would... If all people were really focused on the good, creation, arrangement of life, beautiful, kind, open for future generations. I really want this to unite people, striving for the future, for life, to make the world around you better.
You know we are citizens not only of your own community of your own country, but also citizens of Europe and citizens of the whole world. And we have to take action and we have to care about not only what happens in our own neighbourhood but what happens worldwide and how we can make a change.
In my opinion, what makes a person a person is that he wants to understand the opponent — another person, and not look at any situation only from his own side.
We should´t compete, we should collaborate. It doesn’t matter if it’s between the countries, if it’s between the companies. We always should inspire each other and give a hand to each other. It doesn’t matter – man, woman.
True love can connect us all, can unite us all. And we need to stop judging each other. That’s it.
Please tell us what can you wish to ALLATRA TV viewers?
Of course, be human. The answer is based on your last question, of course, I wish you to be human.
First of all, no matter who is watching us — men, women or children, the first you need is to remain human. Do everything with love, do everything with a positive attitude. And when we treat our business like this, then everything will be good, and first of all, you need to remain human to others, and understand them. Just accept this for yourself and just feel what people may feel when they want to do some actions.
Yes, I would like to wish the channel’s viewers to watch this channel, firstly, because the essence and idea of creating this channel amazed me, and, in fact, I’m very glad that I am giving this channel an interview, and I think that it needs to be supported.
I want to wish to the viewers of your TV to stay real in everything they do. No matter what you think or do — keep in mind that only truth, kindness and sincerity can save this world.
When each of us, in his place, around himself will make life cleaner, brighter, kinder, a life in which good, beauty and justice will rule, then there will be a society of good and justice.
Believe in yourself. I think it is very important. Be kind to each other — it is also very important. And... And never give up.
Less “me”, more “us”. With more help to others, those who were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to do, thank you for doing this, and so I think we will all take off.
I wish you to be happy and I wish you to find inner peace, and to learn, to grow, and follow your passion, you know. Because if you love what you do, you don’t need work because, as I said, you love what you do. And I wish you all the best.
We would like to thank the organizers of the forum and everyone who participated in creating this video.
