Communities

Commitment to action is more easily sustained, and more likely to be successful, if it is expressed in a community of like-minded people. The FutureWorld Foundation facilitates the emergence of active communities of global citizens who feel passionately about one or more pillars of the Global Agenda, and seek unstructured opportunities to interact, learn from one another, and engage to make a difference.
