INTERSECTING

“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”
—Alvin Toffler (1980)

That our world is growingly complex is hardly a radical revelation. The challenge is to act accordingly. To widen our knowledge, we specialize and consequently isolate ourselves in various silos.

In face of overwhelming evidence of our interrelatedness and interdependencies, from our bodies to our environment and our actions within it, we have no other choice than to work at the edges and at the crossroads.

INTERSECTING cuts through strategic policy areas from developed and emerging countries. It builds upon multi-sectoral, multi-disciplinary, and multi-stakeholder approaches.

INTERSECTING has been launched by the Global Solutions Initiative and GIZ and is distributed by the Global Solutions Initiative. It is geared towards think tanks, civil organizations, international institutions, in particular the G20/T20. It addresses established and future generations of leaders in public and private spheres.

INTERSECTING is  available as an e-book in PDF format free of charge or as hardcopy. It has been edited and illustrated by Nicolas J.A. Buchoud, fellow of the Global Solutions Initiative, Holger Kuhle, policy advisor for strategic knowledge partnerships at GIZ, and Gunnar Hartmann, founder of New Dialogues and publisher of INTERSECTING
