Mission: The Public Diplomacy (The People’s Diplomacy)

The Network helps to identify and disseminate transformative ideas with the potential for global impact. The Global Future Council members provide strategic insights, scientific evidence, forward guidance, and multidisciplinary understanding of major issues through:

• Fresh ideas and innovative thinking: Nurturing cutting-edge and disruptive ideas and developing the foresight to identify and shape key areas

• Grounding in expertise and evidence: Providing a foundation for data-, evidence-, fact- and research-based public-private cooperation

• Interdisciplinary and systems approach:  Connecting the dots between established and frontier issues and integrating thought leaders from business, academia, civil society, government and international organizations

Joint working group and Joint Committee play two types of roles – Frontier exploration to address cutting-edge themes that have transformative potential, infuse new ideas, connect frontier thinkers and serve as test beds for future workstreams; and, systems thinking to contribute in a meaningful way to complex global discussions and issues where a multistakeholder group of constituents can drive positive systemic change.

Members’ engagement

The Joint Committee are invitation-only communities and members are invited from Iran and Russia. Council members participate regularly in virtual interactions and Joint Committee activities via the Joint Committee’s TopLink platform, email and regular meetings. Each Joint Committee’s insights are also taken forward by the Joint Committee’s ongoing initiatives, communities and meetings to ensure impact and influence.
