Global Solutions Summit 2023: Opening Plenary: Realigning Societies

Summit 2023
Realigning Societies: Towards a Sustainable, Inclusive and Common Future The current socio-economic system is broken. Business-as-usual – in the government, business, and civil domains – will destabilize the natural world and do little to correct for the prevalent rise in social fragmentation and continued environmental degradation. Fixing the system demands global collective action. It requires new space for dialogue as narratives increasingly focus on rivalry between nations and blocs, rather than on cooperation. Because amidst cultural or religious differences, citizens across the globe are confronted with common challenges. Prioritizing values that unite, rather than those fueling social, economic and political divides, should be at the top of global agendas. Human progress has always been achieved through collaboration in groups, consolidated by institutions, rather than individual success. This requires collaboration across national boundaries initiated by top-level political impetus, along with robust cross-sectoral scientific research. How can policy makers, business leaders and civil society work together towards a socio-economic transformation that will encourage all participants to work in the global public interest? How can the G20 and the G7 coordinate policies to steer a global socio-economic transformation and provide leadership for national, regional, and local actors in the public and private sectors?
