Perspectives

Here is a place for members, associates, and partners to share perspectives related to the theme of “building a world where all can flourish“. A key theme within this is what we need to do in order to make sustainable improvements to our business models, ways of working, quality of life or general wellbeing.

We welcome suggestions. The initial collection of material came out of workshops on the theme “How can we adjust our organisational practice to increase collective impact and better serve the common good?”

We welcome your contribution.
