Barbara Bulc

GD Founder and President

Geneva, Switzerland

Barbara founded GD to build new bridges across silos in our deeply fragmented society, and create new social arrangements prioritizing the wellbeing of people and the planet instead of economic growth. She is a social chemist and systems thinker with over 25 years of leadership experience in business, global diplomacy, health, international development and civic engagement. Barbara is a recognized force in catalyzing new ecosystem partnerships for positive social and economic transformation. She has worked with pioneering global leaders in the private sector, governments and non-profits in over 30 countries in Europe, the U.S., Africa and Asia. She is a practitioner of mindfulness, and believes that embodied awareness is key to our personal and collective transformation. She created the Art4Action initiative to activate new dialogues that open our imagination and reconnect us with ourself and the world. She founded SDG CoLab, an experimental non-profit research collaboratory for ecosystems transformation.
