We live in a world of what seems like unprecedented growth, development and change. Advances in political and social movements, technology, health care, environmental sustainability held the promise of a rich future as humanity seemed to become increasingly connected, integrated and sharing a common vision of the future. Yet the beginning of the century seems to indicate the reverse is actually taking place; high-profile terrorist attacks, the rise of nationalism, global epidemics and pandemics, climate change, cyber crime, mistrust and surveillance now dominate current life. We aim to analyse the causes and effects of global transformations and to identify ways to influence and adjust to the new course that is yet to be determined.
The Global Transformations project is initially being developed by a small global team. As the project begins to evolve and in light of the events and activities we run, further members will be added to the development team. If you would like to join and help develop the future of the project, please drop us a line.
