GLOBAL LEADERS EXCHANGE
Global Leaders Exchange is a closed-door roundtable discussion that brings together leaders from government and the private sector to share experiences of blockchain implementation and adoption. The focus is on current initiatives of policies, legislation, and guidelines adopted around the world and the broader implications on industries and markets. The two-hour meeting is moderated by an industry expert and features an opening presentation on the market sentiment on blockchain and how it has evolved since the GLE meeting in 2018. The outcome of the discussion will be summarized in a white paper highlighting the outcomes from the discussion with recommendations on blockchain strategies.
THE U.N. SUSTAINABILITY SPRINT
The Sprint to Sustainability is a competition hosted by the UN and tailored around the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Teams compete in a 24-hour problem-solving session where the participants are made up of people on the frontlines of technology. Innovators, entrepreneurs, and like-minded tech-heads come together in a joint mission to find solutions that reach beyond across borders and industries. Their aim is outlining workable concepts that are possible to implement using technology-driven blockchain solutions. The Sprint to Sustainability event provides a test-lab of sorts for organizations, companies, and tech-professionals to have highly creative and technical experts develop technology applications for the public good. The ideas generated at the event will be summarised and made public after the event for maximum use and impact in a community and media outreach campaign with our partners.
