We are happy to announce that our CEO, Natsai Audrey Chieza, is now part of the World Economic Forum’s network of Global Future Councils. She has been invited to join other members of the Global Future Council on Synthetic Biology which will be co-chaired by Megan Palmer and Claudia Vickers.
The World Economic Forum’s network of Global Future Councils is a global multidisciplinary knowledge network grouped in expertise-based thematic councils, bringing together thought leaders from diverse backgrounds, including academia, government, business and civil society, to promote innovative thinking towards equitable and sustainable future. As part of The World Economic Forum’s engagement – a not-for-profit foundation for public-private cooperation, the network is a platform intended to empower global leaders to co-shape the global, local and industry agendas.
The novel Global Future Council on Synthetic Biology that launched only this year will focus on developing a roadmap for synthetic biology. The delegates represent diverse industries and nationalities, amongst which are: Twist Bioscience, Ginkgo Bioworks, Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Bayer, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and others.
The Council members will engage in a year-long series of activities, gatherings and projects, focused on contextualising the global shifts and providing strategic guidance and understanding of major issues. We look forward to sharing outcomes from this sustained engagement soon!
