We are coming together to brainstorm new ways of being as a global community.
International organisations, multi-national corporations, politicians, technocrats and experts are already involved in the conversation.
Are You? Do You Dare to Believe that You Can Be Part of the Solution?
We believe the time has come to engage every individual in a global ecosystem for change.
Are you frustrated with the way the world is currently governed? Do you believe that you can make a difference? Do you have the courage to take action?
If you have answered yes to all three questions then you are ready to be a part of the conversation regardless of your level of education, experience or expertise.
That said, the 21st century global societal challenges are complex, multi-layered and resistant to change. These kinds of challenges with multiple diverse stakeholders and interests cannot be changed overnight or by one group acting in silos or by having a surface engagement with the issues.
Actionable insights must derive from accurate data.
As a potential Global Creative Leader, and in order to become a meaningful part of the conversation for change, the responsibility is on each of us
to learn, grow and step out of our comfort zones.
GCR 2017 is a New Model for Educating for Social Change.
Get ready to immerse yourself in conversations, workshops and educational experiences
not built on the traditional lecture-based, top-down, passive-student model.
The responsibility is yours on how deeply you go into the materials, research and thinking on global challenges beforehand
and how much you are prepared to contribute to becoming the change.

Why are carefully designed, sensible policies too often not adopted or implemented? When they are, why do they often fail to generate development outcomes such as security, growth, and equity? And why do some bad policies endure? This World Development Report 2017: Governance and the Law addresses these fundamental questions, which are at the heart of development.
