The world is going through a profound crisis and could be on the brink of a time of war, French President Emmanuel Macron said in a speech on Tuesday (June 11), calling for a global effort to address the dangers of inequality, unchecked technology and climate change.

In a speech to mark the centenary of the International Labour Organisation in Geneva, Macron called for universal social protection and compensation for people whose livelihoods were threatened by technological and environmental change.

“I think that chaos is here. And I think it is our generation’s responsibility not to wait for a new war but to look at the world as it is,” Macron said.
