Global Citizen Forum has unveiled the theme of its much-anticipated 3-year experience in Ras Al Khaimah, THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT — inspired by a theory in which everything is interconnected, and suggests that every act, no matter how small, can serve as a catalyst for significant change.

The first chapter, HUMAN METAMORPHOSIS, will be held on 16-17 November 2022 and will offer an authentic expression of global citizenship catalyzed by the evolution of humanity, generation after generation.

Together, we are igniting a primal journey to shed, unlearn, and unlock all our preconceived notions, in order to illuminate, empower, and catalyze the start of a new identity as global citizens.

Reserve Your Spot

Perfect Timing. Perfect Opportunity.

Seize the Chance of a Lifetime.
