BGD 2023


Themed “Shaping a World in Transition”, the inaugural Berlin Global Dialogue brought together 550 leaders from over 60 countries.

In 25 interactive sessions, participants dived into the three transitions shaping our collective future:

Transition to a new world order

‍How can we shape the transition to a new economic world order in times of increased competition between systems and regions?  

Transition to a low-carbon economy  

How can we accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy while maintaining economic growth and prosperity?  

Transition to a just society

How can we ensure the transition to a just society in times of widening inequalities between and within countries?  


Berlin Global Dialogue 2023 was attended by a diverse group of leaders from business, government, and academia. See some of our select participants below.
