Today’s networks forglobal problem solving have four characteristics: they must be diverse, attack a global problem, use digital communications tools and be free of state control. These networks will include participants from at least two of the four pillars of society – government or international institutions; corporations and business interests; civic society; and individual citizens – who can now play an important role in solving global problems by forming coalitions. The challenge is to integrate resources and overcome the traditional ethnic, linguistic, geographical, political, and business-government-civic society division in a collaborative manner. The network should also be global, or at least multi-national, and include participants from more than one country. So far there are few networks that are global and operate on multiple levels, other than the internet itself. But there are a growing number of problems that are truly global.
