FPCI – Global Town Hall 2020 – Rebuilding From The COVID-19 World
Global Town Hall is a 15-hour marathon discussion where world leaders and high-level experts will discuss on the theme, “Rebuilding from the COVID-19 World.” The conference will discuss the state of the world beset by the COVID-19 crisis, evaluate policy challenges and lessons learned, and gather ideas for future direction, especially in terms of how to rebuild the world economically, socially, environmentally, diplomatically and even geopolitically. Global Town Hall is organized by a consortium of 12 reputable think-tanks from around the world and will be watched by a global audience.
The idea is to convene a global discussion covering the time zones of Southeast Asia, Australia, East Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North America — hence “around the clock.”
The Global Town Hall will take place for around fifteen hours from 09:00 to 00:00 Jakarta Time (GMT+7), thereby accommodating people from the different time zones to take part from Los Angeles to Washington D.C., London, Berlin, New Delhi, Jakarta, Shanghai, Seoul, Sydney, and Tokyo — hence, “around the world.”
There will be a tentative count of twelve sessions to be featured. The majority of sessions are timed for 75 minutes while some will be allocated for 45 minutes and 30 minutes. All will be conducted virtually. Several sessions will commence with a 10-20 minute address by international figures and continued with a panel discussion for the remainder of the time.
