The world is facing a wide variety of political, economic and societal challenges. While immediate fixes are required, it's imperative that leaders create solutions that will ensure long-lasting change.

The Annual Meeting of the Global Future Councils 2023, taking place from the 16-18 October 2023 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is a critical opportunity for experts from around the world to meet and collaborate on solutions that will improve economic growth and human development. By engaging with divergent viewpoints, participants will cultivate insights and ideas that will ultimately lead to enhanced decision-making and enduring transformations.

The network of Global Future Councils is one of the world’s foremost multistakeholder and interdisciplinary knowledge networks dedicated to exploring a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable future. The network's 30 councils, which are embedded in the Forum's 10 centres, focus on topics such as job creation, cybersecurity, international trade, climate and food and water security, among others.

The Dubai meeting will bring together the full network of council members for the first in-person meeting of their two-year term (2023-2024).
