Values in Action in 2021

We are a global community of values experts and practitioners that seeks to actively engage with the Group of Twenty (G20).
Our vision is to add depth to the understanding of values in public policy with the goal of providing the G20 with evidence-based, human-centered policy solutions that contribute to overcoming global challenges.
We launched last year, focusing our inaugural outputs on the 'Value of Values'. This year, our global community will again produce high impact policies and recommendations that will be presented to the G20 Heads of State, this time under the Italian Presidency, for their consideration and activation.
Three driving values guide our work this year: 
Integrity addresses how consistently we deal with our own values in various contexts. How do people manage conflicting values, such as self- vs. collective interests, or the trade-off between individual freedoms and respect towards others? 
Solidarity focuses on how we create, develop and maintain unity between individuals, groups, or societies. What contributes to the formation of mutual awareness of common interests, similarities, and sympathies?
Sharing deals with the joint use of tangible and non-tangible resources. What is needed to provide, operate and maintain a resource. How can we distribute its gains in a fair and sustainable manner across regions and generations?
