Today’s newest recruits will determine tomorrow’s development agenda—and in this highly interactive, first-of-its-kind event, CGD research assistants and communications staff invite other young professionals and students to consider the future of global development.

What will international development look like in 20 years? What challenges will command our attention as leaders in the field? And how will we respond to, or rebuild, the fraying political consensus around development cooperation?

Program

Panel discussion: Hear thoughts from fellow young professionals across diverse fields and sectors.

Audience pulse: We will poll the room on critical development questions. Vote with your feet!

Breakout sessions: Explore evolving development priorities in one of six key areas: global health, migration, climate change, education, gender, and the private sector.

Hosts

Charley Allegar, Communications Assistant, Center for Global Development

Emily Foecke, Research Assistant, Center for Global Development
