“When we planned this year’s topic we knew that technology was disrupting the world we live in, and we had seen the effects of the Brexit vote and the election of Donald Trump in the United States,” said Armand Arton, founder of the Global Citizen Forum. “But in the last couple of months we have also seen the two largest hurricanes on record cause havoc in the Caribbean, while Catalonia has been riven by the political fall-out of an independence referendum. At this year’s forum we will do more than simply reflect on this new disruption. We will explore the initiatives, practical steps, leadership, and the big decisions that are needed for mankind to flourish in the Age of Uncertainty.”
The forum will be held at the unique Aman Sveti Stefan resort, a historic 15th Century fortified island which now serves as an exclusive retreat on the Adriatic Sea. The event will also mark the conclusion of The Global Citizen Quest, Armand Arton’s year-long journey to explore what it means to be a global citizen. “I’ve met with political figures, artists, business leaders and citizens of many countries to explore and help shape the future of citizenship,” said Arton.
With the world facing a broad spectrum of risk and uncertainty, the forum is well placed to act as a platform for exchange on identifying new opportunities for economic migration and integration.
