Values and the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Connecting the Dots Between Value, Values, Profit and Purpose

An understanding and acceptance of shared human values is critical for a world facing challenges accelerated by increasing complexity and interconnectedness. The World Economic Forum’s councils of experts have supported the Forum’s multistakeholder activities with powerful insights and world-leading expertise. That framework now shifts to address the global, regional and industry challenges resulting from many “systems” – the global systems affecting the environment and natural resource security, economic growth and social inclusion, education, gender and work, mobility as well as production, among others. To enable sustained, positive change, the Forum works with a broad range of actors and experts through a series of System Initiatives to improve the effectiveness of the international community’s response to these challenges.
