Who We Are

Our Mission

The mission of Salzburg Global Seminar is to challenge current and future leaders to solve issues of global concern.

To do this we design, facilitate and host international strategic convening and multi-year programs to tackle systems challenges critical for the next generation.

Originally founded in 1947 to encourage the revival of intellectual dialogue in post-war Europe, we are a game-changing catalyst for global engagement on critical issues in education, health, environment, economics, governance, peace-building and more.

We work with carefully chosen partners to drive social change in the areas of imagination, sustainability, and justice.

Salzburg Global connects the most talented people and the most innovative ideas, challenging governments, institutions and individuals at all stages of development and all sectors to rethink their relationships and identify shared interests and goals.
