SVETI STEFAN 2017

Sveti Stefan 2017 1

Sveti Stefan, Montenegro

The islet of Sveti Stefan offered a trip back in time to a historic setting of cobblestoned streets, stone-walled buildings and dream-like courtyards. The fortified village dates back to the 15th century and transports visitors to a different age. Its pink-sand beaches, turquoise waters and orange rooftops complete the stunning setting.

A two-day adventure

The Global Citizen Forum offered an exclusive opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with global leaders, industry visionaries, entrepreneurs and celebrities. Over the course of two days, participants learnt about the global challenges facing the world today and cultivate the relationships that can lead to answers.

Distinguished speakers

The 2017 edition of the Global Citizen Forum brought together an exceptional list of industry leaders and global thinkers who will share their vision in presentations, panel discussions and breakout sessions. These distinguished thought leaders have decades of expertise in international development, philanthropy, economics and more.
