Living in an evolving time, today's global leaders are challenged with difficult obstacles shaping societies and their environments. The Committee on Global Thought and the Tällberg Foundation are collaborating to discuss these issues and determine what kind of new leadership is needed.
This World Leaders Forum program features a conversation with the 2018 winners of the Tällberg/Eliasson Global Leadership Prize followed by a moderated question and answer session with the audience. The Prize is awarded annually for extraordinary leadership—in any field and any country—that is courageous, optimistic, dynamic, rooted in universal values and global in application or in aspiration.
