Global Engagement Forum

Global Engagement Forum

In September 2015, the United Nations formalized the Sustainable Development Goals, which provide a foundation for action to solve some of the world’s most difficult challenges. At PYXERA Global, we see this as a tremendous opportunity to harness the capabilities of the private, public, and social sector, catalyzing and accelerating action to make progress against these goals. The Global Engagement Forum on November 10-12, 2015 will bring together leaders and organizations from across the three sectors to discuss how best to partner and move from aspiration to achievement.
