The World Policy Institute understands that policymakers and opinion leaders need creative ways to catalyze innovation and engage wider coalitions in solving some of the world’s biggest challenges. By working with artists focused on the same issues, this cross-cutting initiative seeks to build a new, collaborative model for social change.
This year's Tisch Forum, "Confronting a Superstorm of Challenges: A New American Grand Strategy," explored the ways in which U. S. public health policy must, moving forward, be formulated in the broadest possible context. It examined the ways in which, on both the domestic and international fronts, public health is intertwined with a host of other issues, including environmental policy, climate change, national security and the economy. The silos in which policy in each area has been created — a divided approach which has outlived its usefulness — are outmoded and counterproductive, at a potential price of American global leadership. Moderated by World Policy Institute president, Michele Wucker, the panel discussed how to build and follow through on a new approach both to public health and the myriad issues of public policy to which it is connected in today's world, calling for a renewed focus on collaboration across policy-fronts and international borders.
