Focus of the FutureWorld Foundation


The principle underpinning the FutureWorld Foundation is that contemplating the future allows us to create it. Because the systemic linkages between different risks can either amplify their harmful impact or modulate or disperse their effects, what we do in regulating and incentivising behavior and adopting effective policies matters greatly. We are not the captives of irrational or irresistible forces and have a responsibility to both avert foreseeable harmful consequences and to craft a better world for future generations.

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 [global and national] vulnerability and promoting security
- for security underpins both community and progress

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

and

Improving the quality of global governance and our global institutions
- for most of the important challenges we face in a highly-connected world cannot be resolved any other way
