Bain's Global Future Councils

Bain's Global Future Councils

The World Economic Forum's Network of Global Future Councils is the world's foremost interdisciplinary knowledge network dedicated to promoting innovative thinking on the future.

The network convenes the most relevant and knowledgeable thought leaders from academia, government, business and civil society to challenge conventional thinking and develop new insights and perspectives on key global systems, as well as the impact and governance of key emerging technologies. In a global environment marked by short-term orientation and siloed thinking, the network fosters interdisciplinary and long-range thinking to support a sustainable and equitable future. 

Members of the network meet annually at the Annual Meeting for the Global Future Councils in the United Arab Emirates, and virtually several times a year, to monitor trends, identify global risks, discuss ideas and explore interconnections between issues. They also develop recommendations and integrate their findings into World Economic Forum activities such as the Annual Meeting in Davos and regional and industry events, as well as into global decision-making processes.
