What is Reuters NEXT?

Reuters NEXT is a free virtual global conference that brings together world leaders, big business and forward-thinking pioneers to inspire, drive action and accelerate innovation to tackle humanity’s greatest challenges.

Combining a diversity of voices with true global outreach, this is where new ideas and perspectives can flourish.

Built around five key pillars covering the key themes that affect us all:

POLICY FOR PROGRESS

Global policy continues to break new boundaries and set precedents that many believed impossible. From historic international agreements on tax, to lock-downs in liberty-loving nations. Beliefs on how much governments can spend have been shattered, leaving central banks around the world facing up to the reality of inflation.

Reuters challenges political leaders, policy makers, central bankers and regulators on how policy can work towards progress for the whole of society. In doing so explore the new rulebook for global trade, tax and policymaking.

BUSINESS OF GROWTH

In the wake of the pandemic and amongst a new wave of global innovation and raised customer expectations, opportunistic businesses are reshaping the way we live, work, travel and bank.

But how easy it is for giant listed companies to change course? Can traditional banks re-invent themselves? And what is it like leading a company built to upend the established ways of doing things? Reuters speaks to leaders, founders and disruptors from across big business and the finance world to find out.

A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

As world leaders come away from COP26, climate change and the environment are finally front and centre of every company and country's policy making. It’s clear that failing to take action is not an option, but a significant, and coordinated private and public-sector effort is required.

While there is a lot of talk about challenges and opportunities, Reuters finds out what is actually happening, what still needs to be done and what impact our efforts are having. Bringing together policymakers, big business, and forward-thinking pioneers to inspire, drive action and accelerate innovation towards tackling one of the global economy’s top priories: the climate emergency.

RADICAL REDESIGN

The pandemic has accelerated new ways of living and working. What will this new life look like and what are the new inventions and philosophies that will shape it?

Reuters explores what post-pandemic life will be like. Flying cars vs zero emissions mobility, hybrid working vs the office of the future, the concept of the metaverse and much more.

A FAIRER WORLD

The world has never been richer yet deep injustices remain. We consider how to bridge income, racial and gender gaps in jobs, healthcare, education, media, culture and information access. How can under-represented and misrepresented groups claim their fair share in socio-political structures, the framing of history and entertainment?
