Revolution 7: Governance

Civil Society/NGOs, Multilaterals, and the Future Outlook

The challenges of the previous revolutions will test our leaders as they seek innovative solutions. Strategic coalitions consisting of governments, corporations, NGOs, and academic institutions will be necessary in mounting effective responses and capitalizing on important opportunities.
