In all disciplines, International Organizations are faced with blockages that prevent them from advancing and evolving. The GENEVA FORUM has carried out a reflection that proposes feasible and concrete solutions to make the international system more efficient.

The program

Develop your projects, create your business...

The GENEVA FORUM invites you to propose your solutions in this field.

In international organizations, the people making the official policy decisions and those working to implement them are not the same, and this hinders effectiveness. Even though they come from the field and draw on this experience, the group of reflective experts find themselves in a paradoxical situation: on the one hand they have the capacity to apprehend and understand the problems in the field, and on the other they create intellectual concepts based on the major theories.

By definition, single theoretical concepts cannot be compatible with the immense diversity of possible situations in reality: but in order to do something viable at the level of such organisations, something simple has to be put in place.

The discussion in this group leads to one conclusion: the right way, the way forward, while field workers come up with other solutions. All viable but not compatible with the principles imposed by the organization. In the end, however, it is usually the latter who have the last word.

In order to make the search for solutions more fluid and efficient, organizations must adopt a permanent Bottom-up approach: the conclusions must come from those who implement them. In the climate of international organisations, even these conclusions will quickly become disconnected and outdated as situations and people change: Bottom-up should be very frequent (at least every two years).

To avoid this, organizations should decentralize and become federal: permanent Bottom-up will then be an intrinsic way of functioning. This implies a diversity of solutions from one region to another but is quite feasible with the means of the agencies.

Suggest a solution !

If you wish, you can present, alone or with others, your proposals to the UN and you will be accompanied in the creation and development of activities based on these proposals.

Come with your ideas, prepare yourself, and participate actively in the workshops of the GENEVA FORUM. Meet your future teammates and get ready to actively change the world!

If you wish to propose a solution to the World in this field :

1) Search and select the International Conference at the UN on which you want to present your idea or solution by consulting this list of GENEVA FORUM Conferences (click here)

2) Fill in the form to submit the abstract (a summary) of your presentation (click here), stating "Yes" in the box "Is your presentation, a proposal for a disruptive technology ?"

3) Come at the next GENEVA FORUM, and give a short presentation of 5 minutes (pitch) and then participate in the one hour workshop following your presentation, with GENEVA FORUM participants who will want to move forward with you.

On site, our team of one-on-one meetings will welcome you in a specific way as a carrier of alternative solutions, and will be in charge in particular of :

  • connect you with the existing Participatory Research Programmes in which your proposal can be the subject of a project
  • and/or accompany you in the creation of a new Participatory Research Programme if your proposal should be the subject of a fully-fledged Programme
