Global Agenda Council on Values: A new Social Covenant

Created by the World Economic Forum, the council aims to engage its stakeholders – governments, business, civil society groups, faith groups etc – to move away from narrowly defined shareholder economy to a stakeholder economy that includes workers, consumers, rights advocates, the environment, and future generations.


The council calls for a period of intentional, global reflection on the values brought to the largest decisions of our time. A method to foster that reflection, they suggest is the development of a New Social Covenant.
