Ideas Fair

Ideas FairThe Ideas Fair is meant to generate new ideas on global problemsolving for the GES community. These ideas are not sufficiently researched and developed to be discussed in a panel, but they have the potential of contributing to the solution of global problems in the future. The Ideas Fair is meant to give these nascent inspirations an initial airing.

The Ideas Fair is an opportunity for GES participants to communicate potentially important ideas in the service of global problemsolving. Each Idea focuses on a novel, unconventional way of dealing with a well-defined global challenge. It must represent out-of-the-box thinking with a large potential global payoff.

Characteristically, the Idea is newly conceived, perhaps not yet fully developed and articulated, controversial, but feasible. As such, it could benefit from further discussion with global leaders. At the Ideas Fair, this discussion takes place in an informal, free-wheeling, open-minded and interactive setting (along the lines of Hyde Park Corner).

Each Idea is presented in a 10-minute slot, followed by the discussion. A list of all Ideas will be made available to all GES participants shortly prior to the Symposium. The participants have the opportunity to attend the discussion of their choice.

At the end of each discussion, the attending participants will cast a vote on the potential significance and feasibility of the Idea. Ideas that have received strong positive evaluations will be taken up in future Symposia.

Thereby, the GES community mobilizes its wide-ranging expertize and creativity to generate innovative proposals that it can investigate in future symposia. In short, the Ideas Fair helps turning the GES into a self-driving force that identifies the insights for it to work on.
