This unique day-long event is designed to stimulate thinking around how business is playing an increasingly important role in helping to address major socio-economic challenges such as population growth, food security, malnutrition and obesity, all in the context of limited natural resources and climate change.

Our goal is to engage panelists and participants in a thoughtful discussion on how governments worldwide can work in concert with civil society and the private sector to accelerate sustainable development.


Over 20 leading international experts from government, academia, civil society and business will discuss how to accelerate sustainable development.
