We live in a historic moment. Constantly faced with new crossroads, we’re trying to address the compounding crises affecting our countries, our communities, and our planet. Forced displacement, conflict, authoritarianism and famine are still present, while democracy is at risk after years of populism and disinformation.
As changemakers concerned about the common good, how do we make decisions — equitable, forward-thinking decisions—in such a volatile, rapidly-changing world?

Building on 40 years of working with leading social innovators, we’re bringing together entrepreneurs who have visionary ideas for systemic change and intimate familiarity with on-the-ground realities. And we’re betting on the power of our community: young changemakers, leaders from business and philanthropy, and this year, some of the most pioneering policymakers of the public sphere.
