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!

Beyond Borders : there is a solution

Every other year The Global Summit gathers a local and global community of visionary change agents, impact organizations, and business leaders to ignite team genius for a thriving world.

The Global Summit V of 2016 in Rio de Janeiro – alongside the Summer Olympics and at the height of political and economic crisis – enrolled players in winning Global Goals for Sustainable Development (or SDGs).  Bioregional networks from favelas to indigenous villages united and strengthened their collective impact on issues from wellness to housing justice to climate change and inclusive education.

Today, as we see the greatest number of refugees in human history, The Global Summit VI of 2018 will gather local solutions in Jordan, a nation built on generations of displaced peoples from neighboring borders of Palestine, Iraq and beyond. Carrying forward a legacy of peace-building and tolerance, Jordan now hosts almost one million registered Syrian refugees. Coupled with this burden, deep cuts in international support and a sharp rise in unemployment are undermining precious stability in a region too often defined by conflict. 

In the light of funding gaps (shrinking Refugee support + trillions needed for SDGs), how can we unleash the power of collaboration to create a more inclusive economy and sustainable world?

Applying advances in communication technologies to enable all voices to be heard, The Global Summit VI will source vital insights and inspiration from Jordan’s diversely resilient peoples, and inspired global citizens alike.

This is your invitation to be a part of a live and online global conversation.

Join us as we discover front-line perspectives on our shared humanitarian crisis, its social and environmental causes, and what is needed to turn the tide.

Blending a fertile field of emergent local ideas with cross-sector innovation, world-class art, hands-on workshops and next generation technology, our 6th 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.
