THOUGHT LEADERSHIP FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET

Expert insight from our global community

Something powerful happens when people from across continents, disciplines and lived experiences convene to share and reflect on challenges that are at once unique and universal.

By welcoming experts and changemakers from all walks of life to Expo City Dubai to join us in our mandate to drive awareness and action for urgent global priorities, we are honoured to be a catalyst for, and locus of, change.

The stories below offer a snapshot of the actionable ideas that emerge from this transformative meeting of minds. They include thought leadership from our global community of partners and colleagues, analysis of our event themes, programme deep dives and panel session recordings.

Spanning climate, urban resilience and inclusivity, they identify issues that resonate with communities worldwide, while setting out roadmaps for meaningful action.

Crucially, taken together, this collection of accounts, reports and personal reflections highlights our duty of care, as individuals, institutions and industries, at this critical juncture in history.
