Delegates will discuss and devise novel ideas which will help to reposition globalization as a great portion of the world perceives they are globalization’s losers. Despite widespread backlash, globalization is unstoppable. Now we must make it more fair and just. With this meeting, we will envision a new modus operandi that restores people’s faith in the idea of an egalitarian globalization, and one that delivers those promises.
