Trust Conference is the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s flagship annual event and a world-leading human rights forum. Held in the heart of London each year, the conference brings together some 600 delegates from diverse sectors representing more than 60 countries.
Day one addressed creating a fairer economic system for those left behind, with a focus on modern slavery, women and girls, radicalisation, and the human impact of climate change. Day two looked at closing civil society space, exploring the relationship between tech and human rights, as well as news and democracy. Both days featured grass-roots voices from around the world, and showcased some of the most innovative solutions to the challenges discussed.
Trust Conference brings together the best minds, leaders, and doers from a diverse range of sectors.
