The main challenges our society faces today are, fundamentally, due to our inability to see the big picture. The world is too complex and the problems are too large for any individual, company or government to comprehend and address. To construct effective solutions to the problems at hand we need to see the interconnectedness and interdependence of all phenomena — we need to understand the full picture, the connection between entities, causality, influence factors etc. — and make decisions accordingly. To accomplish this, vast amounts of data need to be collected and processed to model the desired positive outcomes. The governance systems currently in use may no longer be adequate for the evolving societal and environmental complexity and may pose serious limitations in the near future1— we will need new systems, able to govern based on the interconnectedness of factors, able to collect and process very large amounts of input and provide access to the resulting conclusions for the complete information dissemination and acceptance. The goal of Consensus Foundation (“Consensus”) is to create and evolve this system.
