The People’s Global Summit starts in one week! Register today and join thousands of participants from across the world who have signed up to help build a new eco-social world where no one is left behind. Registration options include free and full access and participation in all the presentations.
Guided by its steering principles, the summit provides spaces where individuals, groups and organisations can advance their ideas to create globally shared values to shape policies and practices that promote trust, sustainability and solidarity. These include presentations from people in communities, 16 live panels, open mic rooms, indigenous-led sessions, storytelling, interviews, and cultural expression along with workshops, academic presentations, and 26 keynote addresses from political and civil society leaders
Live Opening Ceremony
The live opening ceremony will take place live on Wednesday 29 June, starting at 06:00 UTC.
The summit will be opened by Antonio Guterres, the United Nations Secretary General, who has consistently highlighted the need for transformational change:
This will be followed by a keynote from Kumi Naidoo, a global civil society representative, human rights and environmental activist.
We will all have a task over the days of the summit. Together we will co-design and co-build a People’s Charter to drive forward a new eco-social world that leaves no one behind. In this opening session, we will outline how everyone can be heard and can contribute.

These discussions will contribute to the development of The People’s Charter that will be initially submitted to the world’s leaders as they gather at the 2022 United Nations High-Level Political Forum and General Assembly as an invitation to join us and call to action to work with us for our shared futures..
Open Mic Session
During the Summit, there will Open Mic Sessions that will create the opportunity for all of the summit participants to make comments or reflections on what values, principles, policies and practices should be highlighted in this summit. The Open Mic Platform is text-only and participants can use online translation tools so everyone can express themselves to an international audience. We invite all summit participants to make their contributions at any of the 13 open mic sessions that will take place during the #PeoplesSummit from 29th June through to 2nd July.
Along with the other contributions, the partners of the summit will be closely watching and interacting with the Open Mic Sessions so all people´s comments will contribute to shaping the new eco-social agenda.
