SNF CoLab: Imagine a Better World

We are creating new and immersive ways to share ideas with you and address the challenges that shape our world.

Chatham House is built on big ideas. Help us imagine a better world.

Our researchers develop positive solutions to global challenges, working with governments, charities, businesses and society to build a better future. 

SNF CoLab is our project to share our ideas with you in experimental, collaborative ways - and to learn how you think we can design a better future, overcoming challenges like pandemics, climate change and conflict.

You are never too young to lead, you are never too old to learn.
