A call to action

By Francois-Phillipe Champagne

As we explored the global challenges of today and tomorrow during this past week in Davos, I often felt that we were left with the institutions of yesterday to deal with the problems of tomorrow. Whether we look at water, energy consumption or demographic shifts, it is obvious to the most uninformed that we need to rethink our global governance. As the former president of Costa Rica once said, there is no Planet B, so Planet A better work. A strong call to action for all of us.

We need to rethink our global governance, beginning with the World Economic Forum itself and what it has come to represent.
