Think7 Summit: Agenda is now online

The Think7 Summit will be held on 23 and 24 May 2022 in Berlin. Its agenda is online, now. While it will be mainly an on-site event, parts of the Summit will be held as hybrid sessions. The on-site venue will be the premises of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation and the German Council on Foreign Relations in Berlin. Register for the Summit here. 

A large number of representatives from leading scientific institutions and think tanks from G7 countries will participate in the Think7 Summit. Taking into account the repercussions of the war in Ukraine, we will present the key policy recommendation put forward by the Think7 Task Forces on Climate and Environment, Sustainable Economic Recovery, Global Health, International Cooperation for the Global Common Good and Social Cohesion, Economic Transformation and Open Societies.

We look forward to facilitating exchange between decision-makers from the German government and representatives of international organisations, civil society, labour and business.  In this way, we will also enter into dialogue about the contribution of the G7 Summit in Elmau to solving the most urgent global challenges.  Moreover, at the Think7 Summit we will build bridges between the Think7 and Think20 process, which brings together think tanks from G20 countries.

The Think7 Summit is organised by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and the Global Solutions Initiative (GSI), as think tanks mandated for the Think7 process during the German G7 presidency in 2022. It is conducted in partnership with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES), the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and the Aspen Institute Germany.
