In addition to the public Workshop sessions, Meridian 180 Global Summit participants will engage in two days of examination on how new and developing digital technologies are reshaping critical sectors including Data Governance (Privacy & Security), Banking & Finance, Gender Justice, Smart Cities, and Networked Political Movements and Economies. Throughout the Summit, an “Idea Stream” for each sector will repeatedly bring together diverse subject matter experts and stakeholders from a broad range of disciplines in working sessions. The Idea Streams will grapple with emerging challenges and identify areas of opportunity for action in academia, policy, and the private sector.

Meridian 180 is a multilingual forum for transformative leadership. Its global membership of 800+ thought leaders in academia, government, and business work to generate ideas and guidance on important problems of our time. Collaborative work takes place in English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese on a digital platform and through live meetings and multidisciplinary working groups.
