FACING THE DECISIVE DECADE: the re-evaluation of everything
The Decisive Decade is upon us—a decade that will determine everything from the health of our planet to the stability of our societies.
The world is undergoing incredible changes that demand action: climate instability, pandemic disease and management, economic fragility, organizational and geopolitical uncertainty, systemic inequities, and eroded trust in our institutions. These shifts will radically reshape the global landscape in the next ten years, and decisions we make today will shape our future for generations to come.
While these challenges appear daunting, they also open opportunities. This is the moment to reevaluate basic assumptions and redefine practices and activities of daily life, current systems and institutions, to work across sectors and borders to find solutions to the most pressing problems of our time, and devise new strategies that allow us to take bold and determined action to build a more just, sustainable, and equitable world.
