    GSG Impact Summit

    The GSG Impact Summit 2017 will bring together over 500 leaders and practitioners from the GSG’s global network, including representatives from National Advisory Boards in its 13 member countries, the EU and associate organisations. This year we will also welcome attendees from a wide range of non-member countries where groups are coming together to advance the impact agenda.

    Over the course of the event we will discuss the current state of the sector globally, and work together to identify priorities, key action areas and milestones to take impact investment to tipping point by 2020. In particular, we will assess how the GSG and its members can be most impactful in leading the sector’s development across countries, regions and globally.

    We very much hope that you will be able to join us for what promises to be an important and stimulating summit. Collectively, we can improve lives and the planet by making impact count.
