Quotable: Got a bright idea to re-shape global governance?

Sean Sheridan for Mercy Corps

"The shape of our global governance system was designed after the Second World War. The world was very different. Is this shape still suited for the Global Risks we face today? Is it the right shape to tackle climate change, extreme poverty, and global conflict? ... It is time to explore new forms of global cooperation to future-proof our world. Humanity need new minds, new voices, and new ways. A new shape." 

 

The Global Challenges competition seeks to find new models of global cooperation that are capable of handling modern global risks. There is $5 million in prizes for the top submissions that re-envision global governance for the 21st century.

Swedish billionaire Laszlo Szombatfalvy founded the Global Challenges Foundation in 2012 to help find solutions to the world's most pressing problems such as climate change, extreme poverty, and conflict.
