The speed of change is increasing, but governments are not adapting fast enough, neither internally nor externally.
Shattered by the recent pandemic, by the climate crisis, by global campaigns against injustice, the world has never been so ready for governance innovations. Due to severe uncertainties, there is generally less optimism about the future compared to several decades ago. We need a new optimistic vision for the future.
The 2020s mark a unique opportunity to nudge the process of human reorganization and launch a call for new, fresh and bold ideas. If we don't act now peacefully, others may choose more violent ways of enacting change, which history has shown over and over again.
We need fundamental changes in governance processes, on local, regional, national, and global levels.
We believe that governance systems can be transparent, decentralized, participatory, supported by technology, and human-centered.
We believe in global governance models that are 'of the people, by the people, and for the people'.
And we believe that we, as members of local and global communities, have the resources needed to co-design the right governance for diverse societies and to co-create a possible new and more sustainable future reflecting the values of new generations.
This is governance re-imagined
