The forum is envisioned as a recurring, annual event to promote governance solutions in five key issues: Peace and security, environment, development, new technologies and inclusive economy. Numerous Heads of State and elected representatives will attend the opening session. Regional and international organisations, especially UN agencies will participate as well as civil society in its broadest sense (private sector, NGOs, foundations, think tanks, media, trade unions, religious leaders, philanthropists, experts, etc.) will be active in the working sessions.
