From Rio 2016 to Amman 2018
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.
The Global Summit V of 2016 in Rio, Brazil was held alongside the Summer Olympics and at the height of Brazil’s political and economic crisis. Leaders from Brazil’s favelas to it’s indigenous rain forests gathered to strengthen local impact networks and advance outcomes in health, climate change, education, housing and more (read Rio report).
In 2018 we seize a timely opportunity to cultivate a more sustainable future at the cross-roads of the Middle East.
The Global Summit VI social innovation forum is planting seeds for renewal in the rich cradle of human civilization; Amman, Jordan; a nation built on generations of displaced peoples from neighboring borders of Palestine, Iraq and now Syria.
Blending a fertile field of cross-sector ideas, 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.
