Global Solutions Initiative

Contributing to the recoupling agenda 

PwC collaborates with the Global Solutions Initiative (GSI) on myriad initiatives.

At the Global Solutions Summit, PwC collaborates alongside business and policy makers on issues of global importance and specifically, on the need to bring about systemic change so that economies deliver sustained outcomes for societies within our planetary boundaries.

Our collaboration with GSI has grown out of the need to provide a more integrated, coherent response to pressing societal issues across different stakeholder groups, including businesses.

PwC at the Global Solutions Summit 2022

This year’s summit was hybrid in nature with a small number of attendees gathered in Berlin. A number of our leaders participated in panels on climate, digital governance, measurement and reporting and the future of work, among others.

The overarching theme of the Summit is to promote social wellbeing within planetary boundaries and it is underpinned by the recoupling narrative.

Young Global Changers

The Global Solutions Initiative's Young Global Changers (YGC) programme brings young people together from around the world. The overarching goals of the programme are to connect, inspire and share innovative ideas among the people taking part.  

In 2022 the GSI launched the “Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards” that aims to identify and recognize young changemakers from all over the world who contribute actively towards a better alignment – a “recoupling” – of economic prosperity with environmental sustainability and the needs and demands of societies, communities and individuals. The finalists presented their projects at the Global Solutions Summit 2022 in Berlin.
