Migration Summit 2023


The Migration Summit is a month-long global convening designed to build bridges between diverse communities of displaced learners, universities, companies, nonprofits and NGOs, social enterprises, foundations, philanthropists, researchers, policymakers and employers around the key challenges and opportunities for refugee and migrant communities. 


The event ran its first edition in April 2022 which explored the theme of “Education and Workforce Development in Displacement” with +40 live events, +150 panelists and +900 participants from all around the world.  


We’ll be running the second edition of the event in April 2023 which will focus on the theme “Co-creating Pathways to Learning, Livelihood, and Dignity” through virtual and in-person events hosted by participating individuals and partners around the world.
