We offer the report you are about to read in the spirit of collaboration, humility, and curiosity. With trust in government at an all-time low and politicians routinely facing death threats, those of us working to revitalize democracy have no choice but to work together. Collaborating on better political leadership is a critical pathway to a brighter future.
I want to personally thank everyone who has provided leadership in this space; the Apolitical Foundation team that made this report possible; and, most importantly, the courageous people who choose elected office as a way to serve people and the planet.
We edited this report during record COVID-19 cases in many countries, the release of the IPCC’s sixth report on the impacts of climate change, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. I can’t think of stronger arguments for healthy democracies and trusted political leaders.
