Forum for Global Challenges: call for contributions

October 26th, 2021

The Forum for Global Challenges are seeking proposals for contributions from areas including business, academia, the public sector and civil society from all parts of the world.

They are seeking solutions to the over-arching challenges of climate change and inequalities and are inviting proposals for contributions to several topics, with details on each topic provided in the call guide. In brief these are:

  1. Green Economy
  2. Restoring Nature
  3. Future of Cities
  4. Mobilities and Migration
  5. Food and Nutrition Security
  6. Health and Wellbeing
  7. Education and Employment Futures
  8. Gender Equality
  9. Making Change Happen

Proposals for contributions can address more than one of these topics, as it is recognised that many challenges lie at the intersections between them.

The contribution proposal is limited to 3,000 characters covering the problem, solution and evidence.

Contributions can be on anything related to the topics above, but submissions on descriptions, research, and evaluation of policy, societal and technical solutions that have been tried and implemented (whether successful or not) are particularly encouraged, as well as submissions for novel solutions, with evidence and rationale underpinning them.

The deadline for proposals is Friday 3 December 2021.

Selected contributions will be presented in the form of:

  • Live Presentation (in person or virtual)
  • Live Poster Presentation (in person)
  • Digital Posters (this also can include a 3-minute recorded presentation)

Registration is not required to submit contributions, but registration will be required to present the accepted contributions (whether live or virtual).

Please visit the Forum for Global Challenges website for more information or visit the Call for Contributions page to submit a proposal.

The Forum for Global Challenges is a major biennial conference seeking to catalyse solutions to the some of the most pressing challenges of our time: climate change and inequality.

The 3,000-delegate Forum 2022 will be held in Birmingham, UK, between 3-5 May 2022, and will be fully hybrid.

Confirmed keynote speakers include presidents, leaders of international organisations and NGOs, business leaders, politicians, philanthropists, practitioners and thought leaders from academia and beyond.
