Follow Up Plan 2017 & beyond


Carrying forward The Global Summit mission throughout the year, facilitating organization, Empowerment WORKS hosts a variety of collaborative programs such as Pulse of the Movement webcasts, Social Impact Salons, and other local solution oriented events, aka Local Summits.

In 2017, while gathering inspiration for Summit 2018 in SF, Empowerment WORKS is working to convene diverse leaders in a regenerative investment strategy for post-earthquake Nepal. Learn more at [].


As the purpose of The Global Summit is to mobilize local solutions to humanity's most pressing challenges, we've created a virtual program & toolkits for just that!   What you can do: 

1) Be inspired by The Global Summit V videos at [YouTube/TheGlobalSummitTV]

2) Get your Local Solutions Toolkits [HERE] and follow the steps to co-create your plan

3) Share your challenges, triumphs, and inspiration with our [community network]!


While The Global Summit unites our global community, local communities are where the most vital innovations, relevant ideas, and critical knowledge come from.  By sourcing what works locally, and sharing it world-wide, Local Summits are a mechanism to exchange solutions, ideas and appropriate technologies within and between participating communities.

In 2016 we built on our efforts to advance local solutions on UN global targets which began with the lead up to our first Olympic biennial, London 2012.
Our first African Local Summit of 2012 united local best practices across Africa around the Millennium Development Goals and gathered citizen input into the issues that mattered most to their communities via mobile voting.
