A NEW KIND OF

GLOBAL GATHERING

Launched in 2017 in partnership with the United Nations, The Global People’s Summit, is a fully immersive experience that brings people from around the world together with leaders from government, civil society, and the private sector to discuss today’s most pressing challenges. 


We connect you and the world with the United Nations


GLOBALLY 

SEPTEMBER 2018

The Global People's Summit is not your typical conference. Leveraging innovative technology we break down the barriers of geography and access, allowing more people to join high-level conversations happening at the UN and connecting like-minded individuals ready to collaborate for a better future.
