Global Solutions Summit May 27-28, 2021
The Global Solutions Summit 2021 supports the T20 and G20 under the Italian G20 Presidency. It brings together top researchers, policymakers, business leaders and civil society representatives in a renowned global problem-solving process.
The Summit builds bridges between past G20 Presidencies and Indonesia and India in the coming two years. It will focus heavily on a Great Realignment in the post-COVID world, in the spirit of recoupling economic progress with social progress.
The Global Solutions Summit will take place on May 27 and 28, 2021. Regardless of whether the gathering will be virtual or on location in Berlin: You will want to be there! So save the date.

What happens next?
Registration for the next Global Solutions Summit will open in March, which you’ll be notified about via e-mail. While we continue our work on programme and infrastructure, please don’t hesitate to contact us with your ideas, concerns or questions at email@example.com.
Whatever restrictions and safety measures might apply to your home in spring: We will make sure to hear your voice and include your expertise, perspective and opinion in this important steppingstone for the G20 and T20 agenda!
During the upcoming weeks, we very much hope to see ways opening up to also bring small groups together in Berlin physically and – most important – safely. If so, the summit will combine our best physical and digital formats. Find regular updates, first speakers and subjects of the next Global Solutions Summit on the following pages.
