If you were granted one wish of one gift to the world, what would it be?

Suppose you were handed an ancient lamp by an archaeologist friend of yours who recently retrieved it from an excavation. This lamp resembles those of the story books, but on its side you find inscribed the following unusual message:

"The bearer of this lamp is entitled to give one gift to the world.
Rub the lamps' side to summon the genie who will fulfill your wish."

What would your gift to the world be?

Consider it as broadly as you can. your gift can be something you offer your family, community, or humanity in general. Do not concern with feasibility or the challenges of implementation.
