The World Government Summit is a global platform dedicated to shaping the future of governments worldwide.
The Summit, each year, sets the agenda for the next generation of governments. It focuses on how they can harness innovation and technology to solve universal challenges facing humanity.
The Annual Gathering of the World Government Summit, held in February in Dubai, hosts over 4000 participants. Moreso, invites world leaders, international organizations’ representatives, thinkers, and experts from over 150 countries.
The leader of the Roman Catholic Church Pope Francis attended the summit. He urged policymakers and government leaders to think about not only economic but social and moral interests when tackling global challenges.
“It is my sincere hope that the question underlying your reflections will not only be ‘what are the best opportunities to take advantage of?’ but ‘what kind of world do we want to build together?’,” the Pope said.
“This question leads us to think of people and of persons rather than capital and economic interests. It is a question that does not look to tomorrow, but further into the future, to the responsibility weighing upon us; handing on this world of ours to those who will come after us, preserving it from environmental degradation and, even before that, from moral degradation,”
