The aim of the "Forum on Universal Issues" initiative is to summarise the work conducted as part of the French candidacy to World Expo 2025 (interrupted by the Government in January 2018). Its purpose is also to open the debate on the values of universality and to present proposals for all-out effort on the major universal and contemporary issues.
The "Forum on Universal Issues" is arranged around different sub-areas: a space for expression and debate (blog), themed discussions under "Mornings on Universal Issues", a major symposium entitled "UNIVERSAL" planned for 2020, mustering artists to create a work embodying the values of universality and publication of a book containing summaries and proposals.
