In 2015, the Sustainability Summit will draw key indications from the initiative’s intermediate milestone reached in its decade-long journey as the world’s prime independent forum on the development roadmaps and strategic goals set for the year 2020 within public and private sector agendas worldwide. Over the last five years, conferences were held under ministerial patronages, welcoming international government delegations in Milan, Rio de Janeiro and Abu Dhabi. They activated a globe-spanning thought leadership symposium that is pragmatically engaged to address specific emergencies and pursue key opportunities in a number of relevant sectors, coming together to foster open exchange, cross-fertilization and new alliances.
“Wise Media’s eighth Abu Dhabi Summit will see an array of world leading experts inaugurate a new chapter of debate and international collaboration at the highest level, in light of the initiative’s unique protocols,” says Sophie Boyer de la Giroday, President of Wise Media and Host of the Summit. “The results achieved by this international community gathering on neutral territory are to be measured in terms of the innovative and game-changing projects, as well as new public-private sector initiatives actioned over the years. These programs demonstrate that ambitious goals can be reached by striving to pursue sustainable societal development on a global scale and developing a long-term vision beyond the political agendas.”
