The Global Centre for Risk and Innovation (GCRI) is a distributed resource and decentralized network committed to accelerating public participation in research, policymaking, and development programs. Our goal is to create a unique nexus where civil society meets and engages the academy, industry, and government to make smarter decisions toward more resilient, democratic, and prosperous communities.
Our methods combine technical aspects, social and political issues, equity perspectives, and a design solution accepted through consensus-building among the local and global communities. GCRI provides a neutral and inclusive space for technology and policy debates as a platform where members can exchange different ideas while leveraging an equal chance to participate in various novel activities, collective actions, local projects, and global initiatives. We act as a decentralized platform for all sectors of society to mobilize and amplify their efforts toward a better world for people, nature and future generations.

The Global Centre for Risk and Innovation (GCRI)
is a registered non-profit organization based in Canada
with partners around the globe to bring bold innovative
ideas to life.
