As globalization transforms how we relate to one another across national and professional boundaries, it is essential that future decision takers and opinion leaders from all walks of life have the opportunity to learn from one another and to test their ideas in an international and inter-disciplinary context. The Trust brings together the rising generation of leaders worldwide, now aged under 40, from government, business, NGOs, academe, the media and other sectors. Its conferences provide a forum where these exceptional individuals, who otherwise would not have a chance to meet, identify the major challenges and opportunities facing them and the world in the decades ahead.
