Abstract
The article examines the work of the 22nd General Assembly of the World Federation of Scientific Workers (WFSW), which was held in Dakar in December 2017. After the bombardment of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, scientists felt their guilt and responsibility. In 1946, on the initiative of a group of British, French and Soviet scientists, an international non-governmental organization, the World Federation of Scientific Workers, was established. The organization united scientists, teachers and engineers from 59 countries, as well as 45 national organizations from 31 countries. The role of scientists in solving global problems of defending peace and preventing nuclear war, energy problems and the issue of the consequences of climate change are considered. The 22nd Assembly worked in Africa. That is why the article deals with the with conditions of the sustainable development of the countries of the African continent, African science and education, in particular, the virtual university project. One of the tasks of the Scientific Symposium was to determine what contribution science can make to the development of Africa? How to navigate the African realities? What scientific achievements and practices can be applied to the development of the African countries? The specifics of the African business culture and algorithms for building effective business communications are considered. Summary decisions of the Assembly are given. The main result of the work of the General Assembly was the Dakar appeal, which states that the main danger to the world today is the new Korean crisis, the violation of the current regime of non-proliferation of nuclear technologies and the development of new non-nuclear weapon systems. The need to consolidate the efforts of scientists and their influence on the governments of states on which the issues of global security, climate and ecology depend are underscored.
