Knowledge at the heart

By Marie Ekeland for 2050

Since the earliest days of 2050, knowledge has always been at the heart of what we are building. Because we know that we need to dig deep and in a holistic manner if we want to grasp the true nature of the 21st century challenges. Because we have long realized how all these challenges are interlinked. Because we are convinced that solutions will emerge from researching and experimenting on the basis of (i) a profound understanding of the problems we are facing and (ii) a clear picture of where we want to go. And not, as we have been doing for years, on the reproduction of old patterns. Today is the day where this conviction and action materialize powerfully in our organization with the arrival of Guillaume Bregeras as our Chief Knowledge Officer. And I could not be more thrilled.

Piece by piece, building our knowledge puzzle

The knowledge stack we are building and sharing, as open resources, is articulated on 3 main topics:

This is only the beginning, as Guillaume’s arrival will allow us to structure and power up a brand new ambition on our knowledge strategy and execution. More, his guidance will help us target the primary topics in the right way and relevant order, and ensure that all our knowledge stack is built together with transition role models all over the world, that it reflects the diversity of their actions, expertises, research, cultures and experiences but draws actionable aligned best practices, and that it is accessible to the many and drives cultural change. And of course, that it is open and shared broadly.

So thank you Guillaume, merci! Thank you for bringing onboard your curious eye, your subtle perspective, your sharp pen, your accuracy of analysis, your soundness and sensibility in all life matters and your immense and positive force, courage and energy. 2050 is shaping up!
