About Global2030

Two workers on two pylons - let's connect!

Global2030 operates as a network and platform for summarizing information and encouraging action on the most important global challenges of the 21st century. The project is independent, non-commercial and not bound to any social faction, company, state, party or religion. Therefore it is based upon cooperation with different social factions: scientists, experts, and artists, as well as decision-makers in politics, business and non-governmental organizations, such as churches, environmental or developmental organizations, etc. (and so on)

Within this network, the project team works, which includes or included:

Global2030 is a project by the Global Challenges Initiative e.V. (registered association) The society is a registered non-profit association with tax exempt status under German law, similar to a 501(c) organization in the USA (United States of America):

  • Board of directors: Marie-Eve Bedard MA, Meenal Joshi M.Sc., Angela Richards PhD and Dipl.-Pol. Lars Vogelsang (according to art. 6.1 of the Articles of Association, two of these authorized, representing/acting board members can jointly represent the association); additionally (managing board member who is not an authorized representing/acting director): Katherine Aliza Brownell BA
  • Supervisory Committee: Dr. Matthias Manrique and Michael Bradford Wiley BA
  • Auditor: Stephanie Motzek BA(Hons).

The previous name of the organization and the project was Global2015. The name change was related to the close of 2015 as the main target year of the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the adoption of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The name of the project was changed to Global2030, while the new name of the registered association was intended not to include a year (in case new global challenges appear after 2030). It is now called Global Challenges Initiative e.V. (instead of Global2015 e.V.).

The project is initiated and supported with office resources by Agenda-Agentur Berlin - external -, consultancy for sustainable development, Germany. This support is not connected with any obligations.

The draft survey on main global challenges will be reviewed by scientists and experts, which in the near future may turn into a Review Group, or Scientific Board.

After finishing the survey there will be a continuous updating for timeliness and monitoring purposes. For these updates there will be a set of rules for procedural matters. Furthermore, different actors will be approached by the association to consider increasing their work in overcoming the challenges, especially artists, and decision-makers in politics and business.
