The focus is on promoting inclusivity and equality as a catalyst for progress towards global sustainable development.

Heads of state, human rights activists, business and industry leaders, policy makers, entrepreneurs, representatives from non-governmental organisations as well as academics are all in attendance, to give their voice in this global phenomenon.
