Harvard University Faculty Club, April 26, 2023
I am excited to announce the founding of the Global Enlightenment Community, a collective of distinguished leaders, thinkers, innovators, artists, and business leaders dedicated to building a future based on the principles of AIWS – the Age of Global Enlightenment.
As we look to the future, it is clear that technology and innovation will play a crucial role in shaping the world we live in. However, it is equally clear that we must approach these developments with caution and care, lest we create a future that is unrecognizable and even dangerous.
That is why the Global Enlightenment Community is so important. By bringing together some of the brightest minds in the world, we can work together to ensure that technology and innovation are harnessed for the greater good. Together, we can chart a course towards a future that is both prosperous and just, and that benefits all members of society.
I invite all distinguished leaders, thinkers, innovators, artists, and business leaders who share our vision to join us in this important mission. Together, we can build a future that is worthy of our best aspirations and that reflects the values of Global Enlightenment.
Thank you, and I look forward to working with you all.
Governor Michael Dukakis, Chair of Boston Global Forum
