From Jordan 2018 to Japan to the World in 2020

In 2018 in Amman, Jordan we explored the innovative solutions at the cross-roads of displaced people and rich cultures across the Middle East.

The Global Summit’s 3rd biennial Forum to coincide with the Olympic Games has gone online to become the inaugural Impact Games.

With it, we are bringing the best of our community to the table to co-create a new infinitely inclusive series, more voices, more movements, and more year-round.

Blending a fertile field of diverse 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.

Thank you, Partners!

Champion teams in the first full-scale Hackathon in Amman, Jordan delivered 16 prototypes in the Global Pitch.  They could not have done it without you.  See Outcomes!
