Global Evidence Summit 2021 - Call for Hosts

We are now inviting expressions of interest to host the Global Evidence Summit in 2021

Following the success of the inaugural Global Evidence Summit (GES) in Cape Town in 2017, four global leaders in evidence-based policy and practice will again join forces to deliver the second Global Evidence Summit in 2021.

The GES is a quadrennial event that brings together some of the world’s leading organizations in evidence-based practice in a shared mission to provide a platform to discuss critical issues across different sectors, including health, education, social justice, the environment and climate change. The GES is intended as a multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural event to exchange ideas about how we best produce, summarize and disseminate evidence to inform policy and practice, and using that evidence to improve people’s lives across the world.

Expressions of interest to host the Global Evidence Summit 2021 are open
