Join us this summer as business leaders, government officials, civil society leaders, academia and more gather virtually from around the world for our biggest event of the year.
The annual UN Global Compact Leaders Summit mobilizes and connects thousands of business leaders, policy makers, civil society and academia representatives, from all over the world, to take action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This year’s virtual Leaders Summit will address the converging crises of climate change, the covid-19 global pandemic, worsening social and economic inequality, and unchecked corruption, and offer a roadmap for a sustainable recovery.
Together we will exchange knowledge, take stock of progress, highlight areas for greater influence, and inspire collective action to make lasting change. Join thousands of global leaders and SDG stakeholders as we elevate ambition for strategic collective action, rebuild a just, equitable and resilient world.
