GLOBAL AGENDA

The FutureWorld Foundation will focus on the five priority areas that can be said to constitute a Global Agenda:
  • Delivering [environmentally and socially] sustainable economic growth - for without this, we shall not be able to achieve anything else.

  • Reducing poverty and improving equity - because exceptional prosperity for the few at the expense of the many is neither justifiable nor sustainable.

  • Addressing the sources of vulnerability and promoting global, regional, national and human security - for security underpins both community and progress .

  • Sharing the norms and values that enable global coexistence, while respecting cultural differences - because respect for core values and universal norms allows us to live in harmony, while appreciation of cultural diversity enriches our understanding.

  • Improving the quality of global governance and our global institutions - for most of the important challenges we face in a highly-connected world can only be resolved in this way.
