Pascal Lamy, Chair of the Oxford Martin Commission for Future Generations, delivered Columbia University's second annual Global Thought Lecture on 29 April 2014, speaking on 'Global Governance and Future Challenges: Lessons from the Oxford Martin Commission'. The event, which was attended by two hundred students and staff, was organised by Columbia University's Committee on Global Thought and Columbia University's World Leaders Forum.

Pascal Lamy highlighted the challenges of globalisation, which he described as "the great transformation of our time". He emphasised the Oxford Martin Commission's recommendation to use 'creative coalitions' of states, businesses, and other stakeholders to tackle global challenges, and stressed the Commission's call for a greater sense of shared global values.
