Humanity currently faces multiple global catastrophic risks that need to be addressed. To address these challenges, the Global Challenges Foundation is dedicated to promoting the creation and development of improved global decision-making models aimed at reducing and mitigating these risks.

Our work

The Global Challenges Foundation seeks to:

  • Raise awareness about the significant risks facing humanity and the current gaps in institutional risk management.
  • Facilitate constructive dialogue between policymakers, researchers, opinion leaders and experts, to foster a greater understanding of these risks and their potential impact. 
  • Actively promote the creation of networks, collaborations and initiatives aimed at developing governance solutions and moving the conversation forward.
  • Advocate for improved governance of global risks through reform processes, seeking to ensure that effective measures are put in place to mitigate these risks and safeguard the future of our planet.
