From Jordan 2018 to Japan 2020

Every other year The Global Summit gathers a local and global community of visionary change agents, impact organizations, and business leaders driven by the belief, ‘Through Collaboration, Change is Possible”.

In each summit, we share and build the critical tools and teams needed to move our world closer to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals ensuring peace, prosperity and sustainability by 2030 – uniquely guided by local opportunities and assets.

In 2018 we seized a timely opportunity to cultivate a more sustainable future at the cross-roads of the Middle East with new seeds for renewal planted in the rich cradle of human civilization; Amman, Jordan; a nation built on generations of displaced peoples.

Looking further East to the land of the Rising Sun we celebrate our 3rd biennial to coincide with the Summer Olympics in Tokyo 2020.

Blending a fertile field of cross-sector ideas, world-class art, hands-on workshops and next generation technology, our 7th biennial promises to be the most significant yet as we integrate being, thinking, doing and fun to forge holistic solutions in the face of our toughest challenges.

Why Participate?

  • Gain vital tools, connections and partners to build an ecologically thriving, socially just, and economically robust world.

  • Create your dream team — meet the world’s leading innovators across media, technology, art, education and business.

  • Join an extraordinary global community of Partners In Empowerment (PIE) – greater than the sum of our parts.

We succeeded. There’s always more – yet we moved the ball forward in a big way.
