Speech Topics

Global Tectonics

Global Tectonics begins with a question: What will the world look like in 2025? How about 2030, 2040, or even 2050? In answering these questions, Global Tectonics identifies and analyzes the distinct and driving forces of change that will transform the planet and govern our interaction. The goal of the project is to promote strategic, forward-looking thinking among current and future leaders by considering what these changes will mean for decision-makers worldwide.

Global Tectonics is a challenge to leaders — a challenge to go beyond the triage reactions of today and think seriously about the events that are over the horizon, a challenge to formulate and carry out policies in the near term in order to affect longer-range consequences.
