With the theme “Closing the Distance,” the 2021 Forum explored ways to bridge the divides between the world’s toughest challenges and the innovative solutions that aim to build a better future for all—with time to become closer with each other along the way.
The 2021 Forum was designed for learning, connection, and taking action for anyone dedicated to social progress.
Since 2004, we’ve gathered thousands of delegates from more than 100 countries.
Each year, our team curates dozens of speakers who reflect a range of global voices and experiences.
Registration is quick, free, and open to everyone. Sign up below and indicate how you’d like to join us. You can attend the full Forum on our event platform, watch our plenaries only, or access recordings later.
Our program is a mix of plenaries, sessions, networking, and wellbeing activities, and more. Many sessions are curated directly from social entrepreneurs and other social innovators across the globe. Preview our schedule of events and plan your experience in advance.
Our plenaries celebrate progress through social commentary and visual arts. We hope you’ll join us to be inspired and renewed amidst today’s pressing challenges. Let us know if you’d like to watch our plenaries only.
