World Policy Around the Table

The world needs people with fresh ideas and global perspectives to be seated “around the table” in order to catalyze innovative thinking on challenges that span borders:

Sustainable Global Cities
Entrepreneurship Ecosystems
Closing the Gender Gap
Security Across Borders
Heading Off Financial Crisis
and the Arts-Policy Nexus across all of these topics.

At each table, hosts including World Policy Fellows and eminent friends will engage guests in dynamic conversation around these themes, generating insights and connections that will help inform our work in the coming year.
