It’s time to reinterpret Nizami Ganjavi’s philosophy for global harmony and cooperation to achieve the SDGs – Canadian entrepreneur
It’s time to reinterpret Nizami Ganjavi’s romanticism-based philosophy for global harmony and cooperation to achieve the UN SDGs, Giovanna Mingarelli, one of Canada’s Top 100 Women Entrepreneurs, said on Friday at the ‘a closing ceremony of the 2021 Young Leaders Forum hosted by Nizami Ganjavi International Center in Baku, News.Az reports.
The Young Leaders Forum brought together some of the world’s emerging leaders to discuss pressing global issues.
“It is juxtaposed on a world stage that is in turmoil, where our systems are overwhelmed, cooperation is fragile and COVID has confused people. We need to focus on the SDG goals we’ve set – and not delay our plans. We need goodwill and a certain sense to have good neighborly relations, ”said Ms Flagged.
The Canadian entrepreneur said the Forum focused on topics ranging from the future of jobs and skills development to the role of young leaders in the fight against reform. “The platform for these conversations would not have been possible without Azerbaijani national poet Nizami Ganjavi, to whom I would like to extend my sincere greetings and respect. I believe that Nizami Ganjavi is not only a national poet of Azerbaijan, but in the truest sense, he is a poet of youth and a poet of humanity.
“For those of you who don’t know him, Nizami Ganjavi was an 11th century poet who inspired romanticism in Europe and around the world. For example, the great pioneers of romanticism in Europe, including John Keats, William Wordsworth, Mary Shelly and Shakespeare, were inspired by the philosophy of Nizami Ganjavi. Today, I believe that we can identify great wisdom in the romanticism of Nizami Ganjavi, where we are inspired to make it a place of beauty, growth, opportunity, excellence and sustainability for everyone – and for future generations, ”she added.
Giovanna mentioned the work of Nizami Ganjavi because these ideals underpin the policies and practices needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals today.
“Nizami Ganjavi’s vision would be based on the qualities of love, care, responsibility, tolerance and dignity,” she said. “All of these qualities enable and can lead to more confident relationships and outcomes to achieve the urgent SDG goals that we are striving to achieve. If we can’t talk to each other reasonably, there is nothing we can do, ”she said.
The Canadian entrepreneur stressed that the world needs collaboration, cooperation and dialogue based on trust, and that there can be no inclusive growth without trust between people, communities, countries and regions.
