Over the past 30 years, companies, civil society, and governments have come a long way in creating new collaborative models to address shared challenges and opportunities for sustainable development.

We are faced with challenges such as catastrophic climate change, increasing inequalities, and the rapid emergence of new technologies that disrupt societies and raise new, fundamental ethical questions. To tackle these challenges, we must transcend the status quo of individual actions to foster collaboration for impact at scale. We need well-designed, well-governed, accountable, and impactful collaborations.

Multinational enterprises (MNEs) face a range of challenges when entering developing countries, including the need…

It’s important to remember that the is not here to stay. Our communities will long outlive this episode of disruption. But we must remember our responsibilities to each other. Whether that’s checking up over the phone, video calls with friends or offering a helping hand to neighbours.

Staying at home and social distancing over weeks and months can allow negative thoughts to build up for some people.

We need to change the conversation surrounding the recent public health emergency — less about social distancing and more about community consciousness. Just the same as any disease, the battle against loneliness is a group effort!

Lets fight & defeat together.

The danger of fake news is not that people will believe it. Most fake news isn’t even designed to be believed. The real danger is that the spread of fake news impacts the way that we interpret and respond to real news, both consciously and unconsciously. The World Wide Web has changed the dynamics of information transmission and agenda-setting. Facts mingle with half-truths and untruths to create factitious informational blends (FIBs) that drive speculative News.

The role of traditional media has changed dramatically in the age of the internet-driven, 24-hour news cycle and the proliferation of social media.
