In April 2014, the United Nations released a report stating that it is not a matter of if, but how and how badly climate change will affect humanity. The western United States not only sees some of the worst effects (droughts, pollution) but also some of the most exciting innovations.

A collaboration between Diplomatic Courier and The Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William and Mary, 21st Century Diplomacy: Ballet, Ballots, and Bullets explores important social questions as they relate to diplomacy, such as: What is diplomacy?

Businesses and governments around the world are beginning to come to terms with the new reality of the post-financial crisis era. In response to the excesses leading to the crisis, today there is a primary emphasis on constraints, not growth—e.g., reductions in government spending, postponed corporate expansion, stagnant or declining hiring, and slowing growth in the Far East coupled with little growth in the EU and US. At the same time, there is a critical need to unleash growth, to leverage emerging trends in technology, market needs, and society to expand enterprise and economic opportunity. Success in breaking through to a new wave of growth and prosperity will depend increasingly on human and social capital. In turn, a new, global burst of innovation and entrepreneurship will require a deep pool of highly skilled, creative, inclusive, risk taking individuals and communities.
