About Global Perspectives 2020

At Global Perspectives civil society and other sector leaders, innovators and activists from around the world participate in discussions about the most pressing global issues and devise strategies together to tackle them.

This year’s event will focus on inclusion and innovation in an urban, digital world.

At the event we will:

  • Launch the Centre’s Innovation Report 2020: This year highlighting successful innovations in complex urban contexts to deliver inclusive solutions for marginalised communities.
  • Make new connections and exchange ideas among peers: Last year we convened a group of over 100 senior and globally diverse colleagues from international civil society organisations and their partners.
  • Share inspiration and new ideas: Presentations, workshops and discussions will offer honest in-depth conversations about the future of our organisations.

Why Jakarta?

Jakarta is the perfect location. With our first major event in the city, we will welcome new faces to our network of civil society leaders. This diversity will bring invaluable new experiences and ideas to the table. Also, Euromonitor projects that Jakarta will be the world’s largest megacity by 2030 with 35.6 million people and Indonesia’s vision to become a ‘Smart Nation’ with its Smart City Master Plan is a result of rapid transition from rural to urban.
