Climate change is upon us, fisheries are collapsing, wars continually arise, diseases are rapidly spreading, global financial system crises are growing, and the number of people in poverty is increasing. These issues are overwhelming the capacity of our current array of governments (nation states, the UN, Gs 8-24), the best-intentioned non-governmental organizations, and the most efficient market sector powers to address. In this vacuum there is a promising invention: Global Action Networks (GANs). For the past 20 years entrepreneurs have been developing this new approach whose role in the world is rapidly increasing in importance. GANs mobilize multi-stakeholder resources, bridge divides among people, and promote the long-term deep change and innovation work that is needed to address the global challenges. But this innovation is in early stages of development. It is poorly understood, and often forced into the box of being an NGO, an inter-governmental organization, or even a business. GANs' development can be immensely speeded up by bringing together the experiences and knowledge they have developed as global entrepreneurs. This book does that.
