Global People's Summit

Calling global change-makers, dreamers, do-ers and creators. We need YOUR voice to help shape conversations that impact the world. On 22 September, we'll be connecting the world to the United Nations to catalyze change, celebrate innovation and harness global good. Are you IN?

In partnership with the United Nations Office of Partnerships and the Office of the President of the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, we invite you to join us to discuss and find solutions to the world’s biggest challenges. The Summit democratizes access to conversations and information that shape the world during the United Nations General Assembly. The Global People's Summit is 100% online and inclusive.

Join from anywhere in the world to create change, disrupt development and unlock YOUR potential. We passionately believe that real action for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can only happen when we lift global voices to collaborate, share and co-design solutions, together.

The Summit will feature innovators, world leaders and change-makers from around the world, and will amplify inspirational stories, create space for collaboration and inspire bold action for humanity.
