A SERIES OF CONVERSATIONS TO

FRAME THE FUTURE

We believe that a more prosperous and inclusive future is possible. But we cannot take it for granted. Designing and implementing resilient future strategies for everyone depend on timely deci­sion-making and action from multiple stakeholders. We need to mobilize businesses, governments, policy organizations, uni­versities, researchers, workers, creators, inventors, artists, thinkers, and doers to frame a better future for all.
