We have produced more than 30 sessions online and hosted our first on-ground 'Festival of Ideas' at Dubai Expo 2020 in Feb 2022. Our first on-ground forum in India held on April 15, 2023 at the India International Centre, New Delhi, showcased an exciting programme spanning Healthcare, Education, Artificial Intelligence, Space Travel and Ocean Biodiversity. It was well attended with a robust audience comprising diplomats, policymakers, entrepreneurs, corporates, media, and students and was inaugurated by Prof Ajay K Sood, Principal Scientific Advisor to the Govt. of India. The second on-ground edition in New Delhi is planned for November, 2023 along with our three knowledge partners.
