Global problems demand global solutions. However, the present international system is incapable of coping effectively with problems such as climate change, the North-South economic gap, civil wars, terrorism, pandemic diseases and many others. Fortunately, creative thinkers have put forward numerous workable proposals for dealing with the major threats now facing humanity. Many of these will be addressed by a stellar group of experts at the “Creating a Workable World” conference to be held at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs on October 9-10, 2015. See program below; all speakers listed have been confirmed.
