GTF has been created to reposition perceptions about governance through a global perspective. GTF 2012 was held in Amman, Jordan, (October 7/8) and focused on the role of the modern MENA woman, in the region and globally. This is a turning point for MENA and many preconceived ideas are changing across Politics, Governance, Business and Society. GTF promotes the extensive participation of women as a necessary imperative for our world and the creation of just societies. GTF encourages the participation of young people and welcomes students for free.Global Thinkers Forum was founded by CEO Elizabeth Filippouli, a Strategy and Development expert and former journalist with CNN International and Al Jazeera English.
