Held during UN Week when world leaders gather in New York City for the UN General Assembly, the summit serves as the one place where anyone, anywhere can join the conversation on international development. From forward-thinking technologists, to social activists, corporate trailblazers and young entrepreneurs, every voice is represented.
This year, the Summit will take place September 22-24 under the theme of “Digital. Global. Action”.
