Governance, Leadership & Integrity

government, leadership integrity


In 2030, the world is led by examples of good governance.


Unfortunately, scandal, deceit, dictatorship and corruption are all too common across all forms of leadership and governance. The Edelman Trust Barometer depicts that people show defiance towards businesses, governments, NGOs and media1. In areas of civil unrest, people risk their lives to vote, or are simply denied the chance. News agencies present views and ‘fake news’ swayed by political and financial affiliations. Opportunities to ‘skirt the system’ are presented readily and are made too appealing. The desire to win has become stronger than the desire to play fair, and the need for speed has become more dominant than the need for accuracy and care. Self-preservation and promotion comes before the good of the people.


To make a change, the global SAPA Movement must:

  • Publicly adopt principles of good governance and integrity, and lead by example.
  • Instil values of fair play, participation and positive leadership.
