The World Government Summit is a global platform dedicated to shaping the future of governments worldwide. Each year, the Summit sets the agenda for the next generation of governments, focusing on how they can harness innovation and technology to solve universal challenges facing humanity.
The Summit provides a unique platform to showcase and exchange best practices and smart solutions to the challenges that nations face. It comprises a wide network of leaders of the public and private sectors, and inspires them to think collectively and creatively about disruptive intersections between government and innovation, with the ultimate goal of promoting development and prosperity.
A special track focuses on the SDGs. The “SDGs in Action @WGS” is organized in collaboration with the United Nations, the World Bank and the OECD and brings together a range of stakeholders from around the world – subject-matter experts, international organizations, governments, youth groups, NGOs, academia and private sector – in order to break down silos and find innovative means to progress the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
