Pyxera Global Engagement Forum 2018

October 10 - October 11

The Global Engagement Forum: Live (GEFLive), hosted by PYXERA Global, is a collaboration that brings together leaders from business, government, and nonprofit organizations to work on urgent, yet solvable problems within the context of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Over the course of two days, 250 – 300 leaders will actively co-create solutions and commit to action around four “solvable problems” with the Global Goals. These problems include:

Why is this important now?

We believe that starting with a specific focus, solvable problems within the context of these Goals offers a path forward to create enduring, systemic change. Certain global challenges can be distinguished as solvable because we’ve seen them successfully resolved on smaller scales. The tools, practices, and resources exist. What is needed now is leadership, vision, collaboration, and resources from the public, private, and social sectors, and a clear commitment to move forward. At the Global Engagement Forum: Live, participants bring their resources, knowledge, networks, and passion to bear, with the goal of inspiring future commitment, partnership, and action to help solve these pressing issues in our lifetime.
