The Network of Global Agenda Councils is a unique, global community of over 1,500 premier thought leaders who are the foremost experts in their fields of academia, business, government, international organizations and society. Grouped in over 80 Councils, Global Agenda Council Members commit their extensive knowledge, expertise and passion to jointly shape the global, regional and industry agenda. The Global Agenda Councils are committed to addressing the most pressing issues and opportunities of our time and aim to provide new thinking and solutions.
The Global Agenda Councils convene globally recognized expert communities to provide interdisciplinary thinking, stimulate dialogue, shape agendas and catalyse initiatives. Through ongoing collaboration and debate, as well as through findings, the Global Agenda Councils transform implications and recommendations into key deliverables such as the Outlook on the Global Agenda and Global Agenda Survey, as well as Council-specific projects and reports.
By continuing to build these premier communities and generating personal and professional value by virtue of the globally recognized agenda-setting role, Global Agenda Councils contribute to improving the state of the world individually and as a network.
Council Members meet annually at the Summit on the Global Agenda, the world’s largest brainstorming, which is hosted in partnership with the Government of the United Arab Emirates. At the Summit on the Global Agenda, over 800 Members of the Network engage in interactive workshops and sessions to provide comprehensive insight into the global, industry and regional agendas. Recognizing the great transformations that businesses, economies and societies are currently undergoing, participants at this year’s Summit will focus on how to transform new models into collaborative, sustained processes, which drive solutions for a greener and socially more inclusive world.
