Mission Statement

We are at the tipping point for humanity. The world is in crisis and this decade will determine the quality of life for billions of people. And like it or not, we are all in this together.

We must collaborate to succeed. We must collaborate to survive. To that end, we are launching the Collaboration Think Tank Network that brings influencers and hundreds of thought leaders from each of the five institutions - governments, businesses, non-profits, faith-based orgs, and schools -- to form teams that work together to provide actionable solutions to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of United Nations. Planet.
