Singularity University believes that leveraging the convergence of exponential technologies will set us on the path to solve our Global Grand Challenges and shift from an era of scarcity to abundance. There are twelve global grand challenges (GGCs).
Each GGC includes three perspectives: ensuring basic needs are met for all people, sustaining and improving quality of life, and mitigating future risks. The GGCs are inter-related and inter-dependent. As an example, solving for the water challenge, the health challenge becomes much more doable.
The twelve GGCs are listed below. Each has an objective that is framed to describe the overarching end-state we feel is achievable.
