Global survey points to rising concerns about cost of living, loneliness, technology and climate

Global survey of 50,000 people in 23 countries reveals growing discontent over a range of issues

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Oct. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — A global survey commissioned by the nonprofit Future Investment Initiative Institute (FII) in collaboration with Accenture is released today. It identifies the main issues that concern citizens around the world.

The survey, known as FII’s PRIORITY Compass, is an annual research exercise that surveys people of different ages, backgrounds and countries, informing policy development and providing data to leaders, CEOs, policymakers and organizations to accurately identify the feelings of 60% of the world’s population.

Data plays a vital role in shaping the FII Institute’s year-round discussions, policy advice and investment decisions. The Institute is dedicated to addressing issues common to humanity, such as economic growth, prosperity, climate change, technology regulation, and equitable access to healthcare and education.

This year’s FII PRIORITY Compass report identifies several key issues common to communities around the world:

At the FII7 summit, currently taking place in Riyadh (24-26 October), 6,000 leaders, investors, experts, academics and innovators participate in more than 200 panels and debates designed to address the big problems facing humanity . This research will serve as a basis for discussions, providing essential information on the real problems affecting ordinary people.

FII7 comes one month after world leaders met in New York for the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and six weeks after G20 leaders met in New Delhi. It comes four weeks before world leaders meet to debate climate action at COP28.

Richard Attias, CEO of the Future Investment Initiative Institute, said:

“The 50,000 people we’ve surveyed in 23 countries give us unparalleled insight into what matters to humanity. Now we’ll investigate everything we’re hearing. At next week’s FII7, our data-driven agenda will help formulate initiatives and develop resolutions for action. With many of the world’s leaders and biggest investors in the room, we can help shape a better, safer world.”
