The Prevailing Theme for GLOBE Forum 2018 is ‘Disrupting Business As Usual’

From March 14-16, 2018, 2,000 business and government leaders from over 50 countries will come together to network and advance global business and sustainability agendas. A mix of armchair dialogues, roundtables, salon-style gatherings, lively debates, SPARK talks and opportunities for active participation will make GLOBE Forum a very exciting place to be.

Swap cards with visionaries, entrepreneurs, policy makers, Fortune 500 leaders and countless others who are solving big challenges and creating new opportunities.


The State of our Oceans

Oceans are the lifeblood of planet Earth and humankind. They flow over nearly three-quarters of our planet, and hold 97% of the planet’s water. They produce more than half of the oxygen in the atmosphere, and absorb the most carbon from it. They comprise the largest ecosystem on Earth, harbouring tremendous biodiversity and essentially supporting all living organisms on Earth.

This March, GLOBE Forum puts a spotlight on the plight of our oceans, and the role business, government, and civil society can play to protect them.


The GLOBE Forum 2018 Program will be shaped by the following tracks:

  • Business and Competitiveness
  • Cities and Infrastructure
  • Energy and Technology
  • Materials and Resources
  • Finance and Investment
  • Policy and Trade
