WHO WE ARE
The Global Solutions Institute is the first institute in the world focused specifically on the deployment of problem-solving technologies with the potential to alleviate many of the world’s most pressing problems.
Our mission is to accelerate the distribution of proven, problem-solving technologies, especially to developing countries, to address key resource shortages in the areas of energy, water, food, environment, and health care/public safety.
GSI envisions a better world with the necessary resources to sustain a rapidly growing, more affluent global population.
The Global Solutions Institute was conceived in December 2012 at a historic meeting in Little Rock that brought together the Club de Madrid, comprised of 106 former presidents and prime ministers from more than 70 countries, and the P80 Group Foundation, founded by HRH Prince Charles, which works with the world’s largest pension and sovereign wealth funds.
Both groups are keenly focused on the accelerated deployment of technologies that can address growing global resource shortages. At the conclusion of the meeting, these organizations signed the historic Little Rock Accord, which defined the mission of the Global Solutions Institute as the institute where these technologies will be displayed and demonstrated, and where those with problems and those with solutions will come together to address the most pressing global issues.
