As a society, we are undergoing one of the most significant macrolevel shifts in our lifetimes: the shift from centralized hierarchies to decentralized networks. We’re just starting to see how this affects governments, cultures, industries, and individuals. The study group explores fundamental elements of the networked world and how emerging digital trends have led to political and civic innovation. In spite of progress, we lack solutions for the world’s most pressing civic problems from poverty to education inequality to failing infrastructure. The study group will also consider unsolved civic problems and how lessons from the networked world can be used to tackle society’s greatest challenges.
