Probably the biggest challenge of 2015 is a global, geopolitical one, getting governments to actually talk to one another. I think the best thing I’ve heard at Davos this year was John Hickenlooper saying, ‘If you really want to persuade someone else, listen harder.’ I think that’s a great message for governments.
