Peacefully surviving the post-carbon transition that is already underway, requires courageous leadership, and limitless creativity within the limits of one planet.
Imagine a world where every child born inherits a thriveable future and the responsibility to pass it on — where local communities have the tools needed to mobilize their knowledge, creativity, and sustainable resources – shaping real-time solutions for global resilience.
Rooted in the belief, ‘Through Collaboration, Powerful Change Can Happen’, The Global Summit was brought to life in 2008 to serve as a home for movements working towards a whole system approach to an ecologically thriving, culturally-rich, socially just world.
Through bridge-building events, solution inspiring media, and unifying goals, The Global Summit accelerates the free exchange of ideas between players at all levels.
Uniting people hands-on, and online in shaping solutions to the issues that most affect them, The Global Summit cross-sector eco-system busts the silos that keep our movements stuck; moves ideas to action; and serves as a social innovation testing ground at the leading-edge of collective impact.
Direct outcomes of The Global Summit uphold three pillars of change:
Local to Global Collaboration reducing duplication, empowering community-based solutions to meet the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Regenerative Technologies in energy, digital communication, transportation, food & agriculture, health, housing & education with the power to catalyze immediate climate change solutions (meeting COP21 targets).
What kind of world do you want to co-create?
Supporting Your Year-Round Impact
With COVID-19 moving locally-sourced innovation of the past 12-years online, roots laid across five continents are being connected in 2020 with a Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) solution engine supported by a platform called 1PIE (coming soon to 1PIE.org).
Leveraging the inspiration of media and events, think of 1PIE.org as the backbone infrastructure that acts as the follow-up plan, ensuring that what was set out to be done is getting done. This enables global access and multi-sector collaboration between every individual, and entity involved.
Through 1PIE connectivity and year-round tools, broad worldwide goals for environmental change and sustainable development are achievable and effective. For example—nonprofits interested in clean water in Zimbabwe can join with environmental engineers in Germany specializing in water purification systems, while conferencing with technologists worldwide looking to expand their network, in addition to collaborating with foreign policymakers looking for traction, and journalists looking to bring exposure.
Each participant meets their specific, individual goals within the broader context of creating a thriving world for all.
