Global Solutions Summit 2018
Over 1,100 participants, official delegates from T20 Argentina 2018 and T20 Japan 2019, Nobel Laureates and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, joined us at the Global Solutions Summit 2018 on May 28-29 in Berlin.
The Global Solutions Summit brought together policy leaders from around the world. In over 40 sessions, participants shared insight and ideas on the most pressing issues of our times. These issues were primarily centered on the Task Forces as outlined by the Argentinian T20 and the priorities of the Argentinian G20 Presidency. The event set the cornerstone for key policy recommendations that will recouple the world.
We also welcomed more than 120 Young Global Changers at the summit, representing the next generation of global problem solvers. Throughout the summit as well as during the Summer School they developed specific ideas on recoupling politics, economics and business.
The discussions at the Global Solutions Summit, the activities of the Task Forces and their Policy Briefs all serve to pave the way with concrete recommendations and inspiring visions.
