Activities

The Global Solutions Initiative provides recommendations and visions for the Group of Twenty (G20) on major, global challenges. The visions rest on recoupling economic prosperity with social prosperity. To generate policy proposals, the Global Solutions Initiative brings major think tanks and research organizations together in its Council for Global Problem-Solving.

To stimulate underlying research and connect researchers to relevant policymakers, the Global Solutions Initiative is associated with various workshops, conferences and research networks that share the recoupling vision, such as the Social Macroeconomics Network of the ESRC Initiative on Rebuilding Macroeconomics, the OECD Initiative on New Approaches to Economic Challenges (NAEC), and ERINN (Economic Research on Identities, Norms and Narratives).
