Realigning Societies: Towards a sustainable, inclusive, and common future

The world is in crisis. What can we do now? This spring, we will bring together top leaders from policy, academia, civil society, and the private sector – to find a way out of the crisis. 

About the Global Solutions Summit: Since 2017, the Global Solutions Summit has provided an intense, two-day forum for the world’s leading minds to propose and debate research-based policy recommendations for the G20, G7 and beyond. 

What’s new: This year, we expect to welcome over 100 speakers and 1,000 on-site guests from around the world. The event takes a global view on today’s systemic crises and looks at urgently-needed global solutions.

 Speaker Preview:

  • Steffi Lemke, German Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety, and Consumer Protection
  • Robert Moritz, Global Chairman, PwC
  • Tetsushi Sonobe, Dean & CEO, Asian Development Bank Institute (ABDI)
