Global Challenges Prize 2017: A New Shape

This competition, which is open to groups and organisations across the world, is a quest to find new models of global cooperation capable of handling global risks and will award prize money for the best ideas that re-envision global governance for the 21st century.

The Foundation has a total of US$5 million that it will give in awards in 2017.

The most distinguished entry will receive an award of at least US$1 million.

The prize allocation may also include smaller awards for particularly innovative entries that do not amount to an entire global framework but contain novel partial solutions, such as the composition of a specific decision-making body.
