We propose to the global community to Unite. Inspire. Create. And we offer the conceptual backbone and action platform to advance the recovery – envisioning and implementing novel business models, new political cooperation and deep social cohesion. We are convinced that the world will not go back to a New Normal using a simplistic resetting of legacy systems. We need to unite global stakeholders to inspire in order to create original and innovative solutions in the face of idiosyncratic and continuous turbulence.


The Co-Chairs are:


Ibukun Awosika, Chairman, First Bank of Nigeria, Nigeria
Richard Branson, Founder, Virgin Group, United Kingdom
Andrew Forrest, Founder, The Metal Group, Australia
J. Erik Fyrwald, Chief Executive Officer, Syngenta Group, Switzerland
Roshni Nadar Malhotra, Chairperson, HCL Corporation Ltd., India
Hank McKinnell, Chairman, Moody’s, USA
Sally Ann Ranney, Founder Global Choices, USA
Martin Richenhagen, Chairman, President and CEO, AGCO, USA

The Covid pandemic caused a rapid dislocation that will take years to clear. Many inconsistencies were found as governments globally searched to save lives, maintain people’s livelihoods and support the well-being of the planet. Coherent short-term solutions need to be rebalanced for the long-term that redevelop trust in our institutions. The time is ripe to bring about fundamental changes to our social and political structures – to be led by effective and principled leaders who follow responsible policies in politics, business and across all of society to confront the perils of climate change, economic, racial, ethnic and gender inequality. The Covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated the urgent necessity for increased international and inter-generational collaboration and collective creativity.
