When we truly care about our world and each other, we find the courage to think, feel and act outside of our own and institutional boundaries. This brings us together for the common good.
Barbara Bulc, GD Founder

THE CAUSE

Over 85% of the world’s population lacks access to healthcare, food, water, energy and education.

In a world that is increasingly complex, the societal and environmental challenges we face seem daunting. While we have halved extreme poverty over the past decade, over 5 billion people live off less than $10 a day, with another 1.5 billion under $20. Access to vital products, technologies and services remains an enormous challenge. How can we innovate to respond to this largely untapped multi-trillion dollar economy, while catalysing positive social change?

We have the technical and financial capabilities to solve these challenges, yet no single organisation is equipped to do it alone.  There is an urgent need for new ways of thinking to rebuild our broken systems for a sustainable and inclusive future. Only by working collectively can we ensure the progress and survival of humankind and our planet.
