Presented by Jerome Glenn

How do we handle the world’s major challenges? This session will provide a framework to better understand global change and what is strategic for the future of civilization. Worldwide synergies and cross-impacts will be cited among sustainable development, climate change, water, demographics, democratization, ICT, development gaps, health and disease, global foresight and decision making, conflict and security, gender relations, organized crime, energy, S&T, global ethics, and education.

  • International S&T Organization was created in this study:
    OTA revisited
    Evolves from an information system
    De facto regulator
    Aspects of ISTO:
    Form international guidelines with eminent experts
    Provide access to information about risk and opportunity
    Create a global S&T fund
    Produce annual Davos-like S&T forums
    Engage media and politicians to improve S&T discussion
    Create international treaties as consensus evolves

    3. 3. How can sustainable development be achieved for all while addressing global climate change? 1 How can everyone have sufficient clean water without conflict? 2 How can population growth and resources be brought into balance? 3 How can genuine democracy emerge from authoritarian regimes? 4 How can policymaking be made more sensitive to global long-term perspectives? 5 How can the global convergence of information and communications technologies work for everyone? 6 How can ethical market economies be encouraged to help reduce the gap between rich and poor? 7 How can the threat of new and reemerging diseases and immune microorganisms be reduced? 8 How can the capacity to decide be improved as the nature of work and institutions change? 9 How can shared values and new security strategies reduce ethnic conflicts, terrorism, and the use of weapons of mass destruction? 10 How can the changing status of women improve the human condition? 11 How can transnational organized crime networks be stopped from becoming more powerful and sophisticated global enterprises? 12 How can growing energy demands be met safely and efficiently? 13 How can scientific and technological breakthroughs be accelerated to improve the human condition? 14 How can ethical considerations become more routinely incorporated into global decisions? 15 How can sustainable development be achieved for all while addressing global climate change? How can everyone have sufficient clean water without conflict? How can population growth and resources be brought into balance? How can genuine democracy emerge from authoritarian regimes? How can decisionmaking be enhanced by integrating improved global foresight during unprecedented accelerating change?How can the global convergence of information and communications technologies work for everyone? How can ethical market economies be encouraged to help reduce the gap between rich and poor? How can the threat of new and reemerging diseases and immune microorganisms be reduced? How can education make humanity more intelligent, knowledgeable, and wise enough to address its global challenges? How can shared values and new security strategies reduce ethnic conflicts, terrorism, and the use of weapons of mass destruction? How can the changing status of women improve the human condition? How can growing energy demands be met safely and efficiently? How can scientific and technological breakthroughs be accelerated to improve the human condition? How can ethical considerations become more routinely incorporated into global decisions? How can transnational organized crime networks be stopped from becoming more powerful and sophisticated global enterprises? Framework for understanding Global Change: 15 Global Challenges
