Global Solutions Initiative Global Solutions Summit 2019: The annual Global Solutions Summit held by the Global Solutions Initiative brings together international research organizations, thought leaders and decision makers from politics, business and civil communities. We are keen to announce that the next summit will take place on March 18-19, 2019 in Berlin. The summit aims to provide policy recommendations on major G20 issues, thereby serving as a stepping stone to the Japanese T20 Summit in May 2019 and the Japanese G20 Summit in June 2019.
The Global Solutions Summit 2019 will focus on the priorities of the Japanese G20 Presidency, including policy recommendations on sustainable development, infrastructure finance, financial architecture, trade and investment, climate change, future of work and education, social cohesion and the future of politics, SME policy, policies for aging populations, and more. All discussions will be linked to the overarching narrative of recoupling economic, environmental and social progress. We will furthermore highlight all relevant issues for the future of multilateralism and strengthen the implementation site in our discussions.
