The term humanity has two key levels of meaning. The first level of meaning is rather more narrowly defined. It describes the type of behaviour that is specific only to humans and that distinguishes us from animals. The second level of meaning of humanity is coined in significantly wider terms – it concerns the way humans should behave in the ideal case. This is a matter of our societal and social norms and what is seen as being “human”. This includes key words such as tolerance, charity and kindness. The keynote speakers listed in this section are involved in social projects – in a wide range of different ways – and are committed to the well-being of humanity, both in theory and practice.
