What better way to celebrate GlobeScan’s 25th anniversary than to launch The GlobeScan Foundation, dedicated to the application of social science to help solve humanity’s challenges?
We have chosen the theme “Letting Everyone Speak” to manifest our mission for two reasons. First, we believe everyone has the right to speak on matters that affect their lives. And secondly, when we let everyone speak, we open up the possibility of collaboration, which we believe is essential for meeting humanity’s challenges.
Over the last 25 years, GlobeScan Incorporated has done a great deal of pro bono work—for global NGOs, Complus, UN agencies, and foundations among others.
Now, with our Foundation, we are able to focus and magnify our non-commercial work in order to advance progress for all.
The GlobeScan Foundation is dedicated to helping achieve a sustainable and just world for all. We focus on developing and applying a range of social science tools to give voice to global publics, help unlock collaboration and accelerate progress.
Just as the Consumer Confidence Index is a reliable predictor of our economic future, the GlobeScan Foundation believes that hope can predict our potential as a global society to overcome the social, economic and environmental challenges we face.
We are pleased to release the first Hope Index, reflecting the degree to which 12,000 citizens across 12 countries express optimism on current trends and hope for Humanity's future.
We especially want to hear your feedback and ideas on how we can further develop the Hope Index and include more countries in future years. Please join the conversation via our blog!
The Regeneration Roadmap, a collaborative and multi-faceted initiative by GlobeScan and SustainAbility, aims to provide a roadmap for achieving sustainable development within the next generation, focusing in particular on ways the private sector can improve sustainable development strategy, increase credibility and deliver results at greater speed and scale.
Nearly 25 years after the Brundtland Commission released Our Common Future, and 20 years after the first Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, The Regeneration Roadmap assesses progress made on the sustainable development agenda and offers a new path forward.
This project is inspired by interviews with sustainable development Pioneers, the Ray Anderson Memorial Interviews, conducted over the last year and will include perspectives from a new generation of innovators and entrepreneurs.
We invite you to join us in the year ahead as we embark on a journey to explore the past, present and future of sustainable development.
