At the beginning of 2022, H.E. Antonio Guterres, the United Nations Secretary-General, brought the international community’s attention with 5 alarms, as follows: Challenges coming from COVID19, the global financial system, climate change, lawlessness of cybersecurity, as well as peace and security.
Among their several root causes, the lack of literacy on contemporary issues play an important role. In this regard, strengthening capacities can be positive to mitigate causes and effects through a better understanding of opportunities rather than turning them into problems. For example, the growing use of cryptocurrency in internal and external markets, the development of new technologies, as well as changes in the participation of people who have been historically discriminated.
As a contribution to promote an integral analysis, the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Centre (ROLACC) and the United Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) have brought together their expertise to collaboratively organize this Global Conference focused on the 5 alarms raised by the Secretary-General and its link with contemporary literacy on anticorruption, moved by their positive experience in developing learning tools focused on Anticorruption and its links with Human Rights, Sustainable Development and technologies that have trained hundreds of persons from all regions.
Learning objective: Mainstreaming knowledge about this problem pursues the transformation of discriminatory social institutions, laws, cultural norms, and community practices. It has a powerful impact on raising awareness, empowering people, and fostering positive mindsets for transforming lives and moving forward from theory to practice.
