Concordia’s seventh Annual Summit, held on September 18th & 19th at the Grand Hyatt New York, was the largest nonpartisan forum on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, bringing together over 2,600 of the world’s preeminent thought leaders, influencers, and decision-makers from across all sectors and levels. The goal: to spark dialogue and fuel debate around today’s most pressing global challenges, and to build lasting cross-sector partnerships. The report features summaries of all Plenary and Strategic Dialogue sessions, including key takeaways and quotes, as well as highlighting overall figures for attendees, speakers, press, and more.
