Having been hosted in London, Rio de Janeiro, and twice in San Francisco, The Global Summit is heading to Amman to harness the best of technology, business, and culture in MENA. The Global Summit gathers a cornucopia of local, and global visionary change agents, business leaders, and impact organizations driven by the belief, “Through Collaboration Change is Possible”. The summit is built to share the critical tools and teams needed to walk our world closer to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, ensuring peace, prosperity, and sustainability by 2030—uniquely guided by local opportunities and resources.


The Global Summit unites a powerful network of change makers: educators, entrepreneurs, writers, innovators, community leaders, eco-environmentalists, and think-tanks across all sectors and walks of life—to co-create a wave of practical impact by leading fruitful, immersive discussions on Jordan’s legacy and destiny, the future of work, leading the post-carbon economy with Green jobs, ICT and Data, and exchanges on women, power, money, and politics.


The Global Summit VI, Amman, which will take place from September 9 – 12, culminates in Hackathon, where champions develop prototypes for implementation, and sharing with a fully seated live-stream audience in a final Global Pitch on the closing date of the event.


The VI Summit—the first ever in MENA – welcomes innovators around the globe to apply and become a part of the 200 selected leaders for the powerful, impactful, and invaluable gathering of world young change-makers to build the skills, insights, and teams required to pull this movement through cross-sector collaboration.


This year’s summit will seize the critical circumstances to create a more robust, democratic, and sustainable future at the labyrinths of the Middle East where the social innovation forum is planting seeds for re-growth in the rich cradle of human civilization, steering from Amman, Jordan—a nation built on generations of displaced peoples to impacting neighbouring borders of Palestine, Iraq, and Syria.


Synthesizing a bright horizon of cross-sector ideas, terrific art, hands-on workshops, and next generation technology, the 6th biennial summit promises to be as significant as it will integrate being, thinking, doing, and fun to foster encompassing solutions in the currents of our toughest contemporary challenges. Apply now to be a delegate, speaker, artist, or partner.
