Organized by the Global Citizen Foundation, the Towards a Better Global Economy Conference aims to highlight longer-term implications and the related policy options of major developments in the global economy for citizens around the world. Among other topics, the conference participants will discuss demographic changes and fundamental forces of convergence and competition that are likely to bring about massive shifts in both the sectoral and geographical composition of global output and employment. 

New challenges stemming from increased income inequality, environmental degradation, and climate change but also major opportunities due to factors such as enriched human development and new technological developments will be central discussion points at this conference.

A mix of current and former policy makers, high-level academics, development experts, private sector leaders, journalists, and civil society representatives are invited to initiate a dialogue among stakeholders on key issues facing global economy in order to find policy solutions to problems that affect citizens across the world.
