5th Misk Global Forum brings innovators together

  • This year’s special edition of MGF is focusing on ‘the Ripple Effect’

RIYADH: The fifth edition of the Misk Global Forum (MGF) began on Monday.
The MGF brings together new and established innovators, creators and thinkers from around the world to share insights, discuss issues and enable young people to gain actionable skills. Due to the pandemic, this year’s annual gathering is mainly taking place online.
Shaima Hamidaddin, the MGF executive manager, said: “The pandemic has swept over us as a tidal wave of change, but there is momentum to build a more engaged, more sustainable, and more balanced future.”
“This year’s special edition of MGF is focusing on ‘the Ripple Effect.’ It’s about how our daily actions amplify each other so that ripples spread out from community to community, country to country, continent to continent to become waves of change around the world,” she said.
Other speakers during day one of the MGF included Alain Dehaze, the Adecco Group’s CEO and Marco Lambertini, director general of WWF International, Switzerland.
