The GCRI's Partnership Committee has the oversight of the GCRI institutional community development.

The GCRI's institutional initiatives are made up of working groups, bespoke workshops and trainings, and collaborative projects and services designed to facilitate green transition and the sharing of experiences between institutions and members of the local communities. Partnership Committee guides the future development of city services, technology and also a variety of non-technical topics for the GCRI community.

The GCRI's institutional initiatives brings together leaders from local centres, member organizations, public institutions, commercial entities and industrial sectors. GCRI provide an effective framework for institutional forums to share information and best practices and to discuss possible innovations, funding, and further development of novel services.

Country Coverage
The GCRI is building a new architecture for governance and technology that is more social, integrative, and driven by civil society. It is a place for anyone looking to better integrate private and public action, people, nature, and future generations, to build a global society that attracts us to work together rather than be divided.
We envision a world of harmony, equity, and justice for all on a sustainable planet, nurtured by open collaboration, responsive institutions, and empowered citizens. The end goal is to create a pluralistic network of independent, scalable, and interoperable tribes for impactful action.
The GCRI platform is focused on improving global governance by building a broader community with targeted initiatives and best practices. The GCRI was established on the premise that non-state actors need better digital public infrastructure to coordinate. To accomplish its objectives, the GCRI platform is designed to provide a neutral and inclusive space for technology and policy debates as a platform where members can exchange different ideas while leveraging an equal chance to participate in various novel activities, collective actions, local projects, and global initiatives. The GCRI platform facilitates sustained dialogue and project work among civil society, private entities, foundations, and academia.
