…but finding them can be difficult. Leaders from all parts of society - including business, politics, academia, civil society - have one common task of building resilient and sustainable societies. And they all need the same tool: The mindset to spot the opportunities for sustainability and prosperity in an ever-changing and turbulent environment.
That's where the Global Opportunity Network comes in. In the annual Global Opportunity Report, we present each year a global guide to opportunities for building a safe and sustainable future. Now in its third year, the report enables global changemakers to take sustainable action in a complex, fragile and uncertain environment. For the 2017 edition, 5 500 leaders from within business, government and civil society across five continents provide their insights. They identify and rank 15 sustainability opportunities and in addition showcase 120 practical projects and solutions that already exist around the globe. These range from micro grids that make cities more resilient to climate change, to bacteria that bring depleted soil back to life, to peer-to-peer trading, and inviting ethical hackers to test cyber security.
With each new edition of the report we expand the scope and deepen our understanding of risks and opportunities ahead. In parallel we are developing the Global Opportunity Network, bringing together changemakers from different sectors and regions to share experiences, insights and outlooks. This makes the Global Opportunity Network a unique forum for expanding the horizon of your organization to enable it to navigate safely in an ever changing environment.
The 2017 Global Opportunity Report is out now!
