Challenges of our era Summit photo gallery
25 Mar 2018
At this international event, we discussed some of the most pressing challenges facing the world, but more importantly, we gathered experts, funders and problem solvers to start to work on addressing them.
We looked at three global issues which are central to the prosperity and wellbeing of the world:
- Surgical equity: the Lancet Commission thinks 17 million lives can be saved every year through increased access and improved quality in medical services in the developing world.
- Agriculture and food production: we will soon need to feed a world of 10 billion, and the World Bank believes growth in agriculture can have up to four times the poverty alleviation power of other forms of economic growth.
- Data for good: access to the benefits of the digital revolution have not been shared equally and new information technologies can transform education, governance, finance and the economy for the benefit of all.
The summit took place over one and a half days in Milan, Italy 6-7th march 2018.
