Programme and Registration

High-level programme for the week

On 14 and 15 May the world’s leading networks and initiatives meet to develop and plan their own programmes but that soon gives way to meeting and connecting with each other. We will ask ‘How can my network or initiative enable greater positive impact by collaborating in new ways with others?’

The conversation continues on the 16th when we all convene together, and take the next step in collective systemic change. The annual Partner and Member gatherings of both the GRLI and Conference Des Grande Ecoles will take place on 17&18 May following their participation on the 16th.
