By 2050 the World's population is predicted to reach 9 billion people, and rapid advances in technology will mean we are more connected to each other than ever before.
Our World is now changing so rapidly that we have failed to adapt our thinking to the new challenges and opportunities this is creating.
Individual national governments can no longer control the impact of World events on our daily lives. Yet the greatest threats we face today are increasingly Global, and we will only be able to deal with them effectively by expanding our thinking. For too long our outdated models of national progress have depended on the exploitation of others, infringement of human rights, and selfish consumption of our Planet's non-renewable resources.
Robert P Bruce shows us where globalisation is failing. He brings us new ideas on what should be done to enable truly sustainable living, and to ensure that the huge benefits of Global cooperation are at last shared with every member of 'The Global Race'.
“The opportunity has finally come to our generation, to build a World where we can all be winners."
Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever says, 'The Global Race' gives “a timely and thought provoking reminder that at the heart of the challenges we face today is a crisis of Global governance".
Mark Goldring, Chief Executive of Oxfam: “Robert P Bruce offers a wide ranging and passionate insight into how we can build a fairer world, fit for future generations.”
