In this edition, we continue to investigate catalysts and catalytic actions. In doing so, we get a clearer picture of the true character of the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI) as a movement that inspires and sparks many programmes of action across the globe. Throughout these stories, we are reminded of the role of the GRLI as a purpose driven and nimble movement that seeks to recognise and catalyse powerful change amongst leaders in all spheres of society.

Fulfilling the GRLI’s mission requires individuals and organisations willing and able to take initiative on behalf of all of us - on behalf of the systems within which we operate. Catalysts and catalytic actions are the focus of this issue of Global Responsibility magazine. A catalyst, as I recall from high school chemistry, is a substance typically used to increase the rate of a reaction. Catalysts find and bridge alternate pathways between reactants allowing the rate of reaction to accelerate without consuming the catalyst in the process. Therefore, only a small amount of a particular catalyst is able to transform and produce a much larger volume of product.

It has been suggested in a previous issue of this magazine that global responsibility too begins with a question. In this issue we follow ideas and actions that explore elements of the very same inquiry: “What kind of world do we want to build with the enormous resources we master?” The non-stop quiz show in our household presents a precious and often surprising learning opportunity for parents and children alike. I am constantly discovering new areas of knowledge and practice that I know very little or nothing about (no surprises there). However, in recent weeks this increasingly lead me to ask further questions about individual and collective responsibility. For instance when our youngest asks “Why am I small and you are big?” or her sister demands a detailed explanation about the relevance of my participation in a meeting on the other side of the globe, I invariably ask myself “What are the things worth knowing and ultimately doing?” In our December 2014 newsletter I made reference to this by asking “What is essential? What’s important now?”

This edition asks the right questions. Questions such as ‘What kind of world do we want to create together with the extraordinary resources we have at our disposal? ” and “How do we create an economic system which operates on the assumption we only have one planet?” These questions are at the heart of the challenge of our times, not “How do we get Greece to balance its budget ?
