Over here, the Oxford Martin Commission for Future Generations has just 
launched its first report,

By our standards it is rather modest (and full of worthy platitudes), 
but there seem to be some interesting ideas in there. In particular they 
have looked at "Coalitions of the working" to overcome gridlocks on 
global issues. There is also some potentially developable stuff about an 
early warning platform for cyber-risks, WorldStat for getting good 
global statistics, and sunset clauses for publicly-funded international 

We'll see how it turns out. Or whether some clever people just take the 
ideas and run with them.
