The G7bn summit: World leadership in a crisis

Thursday 10 September 2020

Duration: 9:15AM - 5:45PM

Status: Completed

Join leaders and leaders-to-be in business, media, campaigning and policy. The aim is a To Do list: an agenda for what the world needs now.

One ticket gives you access to all the sessions at the summit but, just like an in-person conference, you can join for as much or as little as you like on the day.

There’s a failure of global leadership. Not just of coordination, but organisation. The UN and EU are stumbling and key countries – Russia, China and the US – reject cooperation except on their own terms. So there’s a need to convene the people who are thinking about global problems: how to make a concerted effort to deal with vaccines or travel restrictions; how to restart economies and supply chains; the future of money and fair dealing online. Tortoise, together with partners, will host a global digital summit to examine and plot what the international community needs to be doing now and what a post-Covid19 world should look like.

Sessions include:

Healthcare justice – develop and distribute vaccines jointly and fairly so that everyone who needs them gets them

Clean travel – reopen the world without putting people or the planet at ever greater risk

Good information – put citizens in control of big data, not the other way around

The deal on debt – when companies and developing economies are drowning in it, restructure it or write it off

Secure trade – restore faith in the global market with fairness and transparency, not tariffs

Food security – act collectively on climate change, because the alternative is mass-scale drought and famine

Plus Keynote speakers to be announced soon.
