We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Forum in 2025! Meanwhile 2024 will be spent working diligently on crafting a fresh vision for the future allowing us to strengthen our position and engagement with our community as well as new stakeholders. In this very early stage of the Forum being an independent public Foundation, we believe that there’s an opportunity to reassess and enhance the forum’s impact and quality, ensuring that it continues to be a meaningful and engaging experience for everyone involved.
We are excited about this period of strategic planning and we, as well as our partners, are already looking forward to returning in 2025 with new ideas and program curation for the next edition. Our community is valuable to us and we encourage you to stay tuned for forthcoming news and updates regarding the 2024-2025 agendas.
Thank you for taking part in our initiative and please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions, feedback, or ideas. Your involvement and feedback are always welcome.
In the meantime, remind yourself of the highlights from our previous Forums on our website as well as on our Youtube channel.
