Addressing global climate and ecological crisis is now an existential necessity, and policy makers cannot do it alone. What if we could tap into the ocean of expertise that already exists across all sectors and all generations, generating precisely the questions and creative innovations required to create the future well-being of humanity and the planet? What if every institution and organisation, everywhere, dedicated their Friday afternoons to make this happen?
