Documentary on Birth of the World Academy of Art and Science and its major milestones intertwined in the social evolution of humanity in the last 75 years.
The e-conference, WAAS@60—A Planetary Moment, marked the 60th anniversary of the founding of the World Academy of Art and Science. It reflected on the unique mission, character and work of the Academy and explored innovative ways in which it can respond to current and emerging challenges. As leading scientists and artists of the world envisioned in 1960, the Academy serves as a forum for leaders, scholars and thinkers to address the pressing challenges confronting humanity from a transnational, transdisciplinary perspective independent of political boundaries and prevailing orthodoxies. WAAS was founded on faith in the power of original and creative ideas—Real Ideas with effective power—to provide leadership in thought that leads to action.
