India Today Conclave 2018: World leaders, think tanks to mull over global challenges

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to join as a speaker for the second time at the annual global ideas platform to be held on March 9 and March 10 in Mumbai.

India Today Conclave is all set to return to Mumbai on March 9 and March 10 with stellar performances, compelling ideas, insightful talks and brilliant short films.

The evolving conclave offers contemporary thought leaders from across the world a forum to share their innovative ideas to shape the global future. One of the distinguished leaders to join the initiative is the former Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton. This is the second time Clinton will be participating in the India Today Conclave.

The theme for 2018 'The Great Churn - Triumphs and Tribulations'. With the tumultuous social, economic and political changes, the past is no longer guided to the future. This means thinking the unthinkable should become the norm.

The theme encompasses all the formidable challenges faced by the global citizens today: be it emerging new leaders, simmering social tensions, massive climatic concerns, growing fears of terror, political, social and economic upheavals or the ambiguities associated with it. Nothing is as it was, whether it is the world, the nation state, society, or community.

However, even in the times of duress, some of the global titans have still succeeded in creating opportunities and moving ahead with the tough times, giving the world HOPE. This year the theme for India Today Conclave, The Great Churn: Triumphs and Tribulation, has been thoughtfully envisioned to prepare for the future.

Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Kalli Purie, Vice Chairperson, India Today Group said, "We are very excited to welcome Former Secretary of State Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton to the India Today Conclave for a second time. When she visited us last she was a senator and at the cusp of her first presidential bid. She has travelled a long way since. Now a global icon for feminism and hope we are so looking forward to welcoming her back in our midst."

India Today Conclave is a unique platform where the sharpest minds from across the globe converge at a forum to discuss and debate issues from around the world. This will be the second year that the India Today Group's signature event will be held in Mumbai in March 2018. The Great Churn, the theme of the India Today Conclave this year, features a path to find your way as the world tilts on its axis.
