Global Solutions Summit
The Global Solutions Summit – the World Policy Forum – is an international conference aimed at addressing key policy challenges facing the G20 and G7 and other global governance fora.
Distinguished experts from think tanks, research organizations, governance, business, and civil society come together each year in the middle of every G20 Presidency to work on concrete policy solutions.
The last Global Solutions Summit was held on May 15-16, 2023, in Berlin, Germany. The next Global Solutions Summit will take place on May 6-7, 2024. Stay up to date on social media and in our newsletter.
Over 100 speakers and 1,000 on-site guests from around the world gathered for the 7th Global Solutions Summit. The Summit takes place in a world of multiple global crises, including climate, health, energy, poverty, political instability, and war. The all-encompassing nature of these crises inspired the 2023 theme, “Realigning Societies: Towards a sustainable, inclusive, and common future.” Premised on the need for a collective, coordinated response worldwide, the Summit brings together stakeholders across sectors, generations, and continents to advance the re-coupling of social, environmental, and economic prosperity for a sustainable future.
The theme of the Global Solutions Summit 2022 was “Listen to the world: Promoting social well-being within planetary boundaries”. It covered the priorities of the G20 and G7 and aimed to be a steppingstone to the G/T20 and G/T7 Summits – a place where T20 and Think7 Task Forces discuss their work with regard to their policy briefs and where multistakeholder decision-makers discuss collective approaches to G20 and G7 problems.
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the 4th Global Solutions Summit was held online. 36 Global Tables, with keynotes, panel discussions and vision statements, tackled the T20 and G20 agenda under the Saudi Arabian Presidency as well as generated policies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
