Their major task: To think, debate, interact and write in a larger group of scientists from various disciplines, writers, poets, filmmakers and policy activists.

Another one, the President of the Global Labor Organization (GLO), Klaus F. Zimmermann, has written the preface to this book, which got published in December 2018. Both are now activists of the GLO, Alfredo Toro Hardy as a GLO Fellow among 1300 Fellows and Affiliates from over 120 countries of this world-wide research and policy network dealing with the human resources challenges of our time.
