New forms of dialogue, cooperation and diplomacy are developing ...

And here a part of it comes into being. The competition between states is gradually being replaced by cooperation between metropolises and regions.

Mindfulness, the conscious choice of words, constructive exchange and cooperation in solving problems that affect everyone, is taking the place of the selfishness of old structures - partly forced by the multitude of crises that no one can handle alone, and voluntarily pursued through intensive worldwide communication and a better understanding between people.
