The Global Summit VI

Harnessing the best of technology, business and culture, The Global Summit unites a powerful network of networks.  Are you ready for the next transformational conversation on the front lines of social, economic and ecological change? Be a part of it!

The Biennial Legacy

Every other year (since 2008) The Global Summit provides a neutral platform for 200 of the world’s most passionate change agents, visionary organizations and entrepreneurs to ignite team genius for a thriving world.

The Global Summit V of 2016 in Rio de Janeiro alongside the Summer Olympics enrolled players into the metaphor of ‘Global Games’ at the height of one of the most tumultuous periods of political and economic crisis in Brazil’s recent history.  In the spirit of Coopetition for a sustainable, just future it united and strengthened bioregional impact networks addressing issues ranging from health to housing to climate change and fairer access to education.

Now with Climate Refugees exponentially on the rise; the plight of Displaced People, the Rights of Nature and inextricably linked acute conflict shading the human story from California to Bangladesh our journey continues at the crossroads of the Middle East in Amman, Jordan.  In a quest beyond borders, The Global Summit VI of 2018 will source rich lessons and inspiration from her diversely resilient peoples.

Blending a fertile field of emergent local ideas with cross-sector innovation games, world-class art and music performances, hands-on workshops and next generation technology, our 6th biennial promises to be our most significant yet as we integrate being, thinking, doing and fun to forge holistic solutions in the face of our toughest challenges.
