Rising Leaders Summits

A mountain in the sun

Rising Leaders Summits are held semi-annually at the Global Liberty Institute in the United States, in Switzerland, and in selected regional Global Liberty Institute chapters

Rising Leaders Summits educate, develop, and mentor young critical thinkers in the private and public sectors, in order to amplify their impact on the key goals of GLI: restoring individual and economic freedoms and preserving the future of free societies across the globe.

RLS participants are selected by the Global Liberty Institute in recognition of their talent and leadership skills, distinguished achievements, evidence of courage and independent thinking, and commitment to economic, individual, social, and political liberty, including the safeguarding of the public's access to objective information free from political or other censorship.

The purpose of the program

The purpose of the program is to explore reforms and policies that ensure individual and economic freedom in the corporate world, on campuses, and in the public policy, all of which are fundamental to safeguarding the opportunities for health and prosperity for individuals and families. A substantial component of the program is networking with senior mentors who are well established as leaders in private and public sector positions. We will focus on six key areas of analysis essential to these goals: economic policy for a free society, health policy and autonomy, media neutrality and technology, education and free speech, entrepreneurship and innovation, and results-driven policies for energy and the climate. In a broader sense, the Summits will address how to ensure the free exchange of ideas fundamental to a free society, without political or other agendas and free from academic and media censorship

The process of participating in the Rising Leaders Summit is initiated by either nomination or self-application to the GLI.
