Collaborating for a Safer World - Unlocking Transformational Ideas

Join the GCSP for an immersive event

You will be challenged to think from different perspectives and use new tools of analysis and methods of thinking. We will gather a diverse range of stakeholders and key players, and together, we will address some of the critical challenges of our shared ecosystem.  Prepare to be provoked. Nothing is impossible. 

Join our experts to participate in workshops on:

  • From the Paris Raid to the Las Vegas Shooting: if we cannot make terrorism simple, we will make it clear
    • Terrorist attacks around the world make the headlines. Willingly or not, we read about terrorism daily. But do we understand it? Do we read it properly? During this workshop we will propose you tools to read terrorism, to analyze it and altogether to understand it.
  • Leading Collaboratively in Turbulent Times:Think like a leader - Act like a leader - Connect like a leader
    • Explore innovative, evidence-based ways of thinking about leading and increasing collaboration between diverse groups in complex environments. Identify ways to further increase your own influencing abilities and connect with fellow professionals from across sectors to learn different approaches.
  • Beyond Strategic Marketing:Partnerships for Impact
    • How to really drive sustainable change for development, peace and security? Saatchi & Saatchi’s ‘Nothing is Impossible’ creative methodology will enable participants to produce short-term tactical solutions to some key challenges of collaboration across sectors (private public partnerships).

The day is made up of plenary sessions, workshops and includes a tour-around-the-world networking lunch. 

Brief Thematic Curiosity Bites, include:

  • AI and International Security : Holy Grail or Dystopia? 

This session will discuss the role of artificial intelligence on international security by looking at the socio-political and military impact of artificial intelligence. It will also discuss the fundamental paradigm shift from linear to exponential thinking that AI produces. More generally this session will explore the role of technology on international security.

  • Media and Arts for Peace,
  • Preventing Violent Extremism
  • Foresight
  • CyberAid
  • Neuroscience: Human Enhancement in war and peace

Human enhancement technologies are expanding fast. It is inevitable that humanity will adopt them in peace and in war.This is due to the "Neuro P5 principle" and in the name of "national security and animus dominandi".Their promise and peril will be analysed.

These Curiosity Bites will unlatch the way to the Award Ceremony of the Prize for Innovation in Global Security.

Participation is free. Limited seats available.
