World is turning into a global village, technological progress reduces distances, and global political and economic processes enable countless new opportunities. Meanwhile, we face growing inequality, increased security threats arising along a number of social axes.

Growing tensions are already threatening security around the world, and new challenges and new threats may further erode trust between generations, nations, states, interest and social groups. This might generate yet more tension and additional threats. Trust is vital for ensuring a future of well-being and security, despite inevitable disruptions.

However, complex and dynamic challenges can no longer be resolved through approaches to which we have grown accustomed. We will address the issue of trust by seeking answers to the question of how we measure it, whether we understand the factors that affect it and how we can contribute to reversing the global trend of eroding trust in all social contexts.
