It’s a unique cross-sector conference designed to spark community action and sustainable solutions.

At the Global Summit, you have the opportunity to work with “Solution Councils,” or mini think tanks, that are working on the major environmental, social and political issues of our time. This year, these facilitated councils will center around five main topics:
- Beyond Climate Change: Oceans, Bio-diversity & the 6th Great Extinction
- Redefining Human Security: Women’s Health, Child Development & Hunger
- Conflicts of Scarcity: Environmental Resources, Population & Human Rights
- Guarding our Freedoms: Speech, Press, Self-Governance & Technology
- Shifting Economies of Scale: Local Currencies, Global Markets & Bio-regional Trade
Do you have something to say on these topics? Do you want to collaborate on finding the solutions? Join the dialogue at the Global Summit!
