2. The Gap Frame underlying concept: towards ideal state of the world

The Gap Frame is a national and global framework for business and other stakeholders to work towards a better world in a concrete and measurable way. The framework highlights the gap between the current state of the world and an ideal future state where all of us live well on one planet.

Instead of comparing countries performance among themselves, the Gap Frame measure a country performance against its ideal future state, highlighting the dimension and the issues where a nation shows the biggest gap to be closed. Through this novel approach, the Gap Frame pinpoints the concrete areas of action for each individual country or region. The goal for any country, region and the world is to move as quickly as possible into a space where all issues are lying within the safe space.
