Shape ideas, policy, the future

The Forum Network is an entirely new digital concept designed for people wishing to help shape better policies for better lives–throughout the year!

On you will be able to draw on enriching content, ideas, data, documents, video and more created and posted by members of the Forum Network.

Policymaking is more than ever an ongoing public process, with many voices and players.

But people need reliable places in which to engage, discuss, share ideas, knowledge and expertise, and be listened to and taken seriously. 

The Forum Network is that place
. Join us!

You talked, we listened

2016 will be remembered for a rising tide of populism, nationalism and historically low levels of trust.

The 2017 Forum (6-7 June) placed a central emphasis on the need for policies winning back the confidence of those who feel left behind, fearful of the impact of globalisation, increasing migration flows, and the unprecedented speed of technological development. 

How can we bridge divides to build more inclusive societies?
