Global Future Council on Systemic Inequalities and Social Cohesion

Council mission and objectives

From global Black Lives Matter protests to unequal impacts of climate change on minority populations, the COVID-19 pandemic has made even clearer how social exclusion, systemic racism and discrimination work against social cohesion and our collective health. Building back better from the pandemic will depend on how all stakeholders invest in social capital and define their stakeholder responsibilities to social justice beyond the status quo. The Global Future Council on Systemic Inequalities and Social Cohesion will focus on emerging examples of stakeholder investments in social capital needed for addressing systemic inequalities and explore the roles and collaborative efforts needed from all stakeholders for strengthening social cohesion and social justice during and beyond the pandemic. It will also make recommendations for mainstreaming social justice and social impact as priorities across the Sustainable Development Goals.

Forum Council Managers:
