What we aim to solve

Salzburg Global Seminar's strategic convening is designed to challenge established mindsets, inspire collaborative solutions and build lasting networks. We do this by identifying key stakeholders, early stage innovators, emerging trends, obstacles to advancement, and points of leverage. Working with specialist partners, we customize multi-year programs to frame problems in fresh ways, facilitate breakthrough experiences and maximize lasting impact.

We focus rigorously on outcomes at four levels:

1. Inspiring new alliances and institutions

2. Creating new professional networks and policy recommendations

3. Global dialogue and global framing

4. Creating innovative global curricula

The Salzburg Global Seminar seeks to magnify the impact of individuals and institutions that bring just and humane values to bear on the global challenges facing their societies and the world.

We work to:
- Illuminate issues of global or regional significance
- Empower people and institutions leading change
- Build strategic coalitions to change attitude and practice
- Leverage media and networks for informed coverage and wide dissemination

The Salzburg Global Seminar convenes imaginative thinkers from different cultures and institutions, organizes problem-focused initiatives, supports leadership development, and engages opinion-makers through active communication networks, all in partnership with leading institutions from around the world and across different sectors of society.

Salzburg Global Seminar designs, facilitates and hosts international convening-- at our historic castle retreat and around the world-- to drive progress based on imagination, sustainability, and justice.

Salzburg Global Seminar has always invested in rising leaders as an essential part of long-term change management. With more than 25,000 members from over 160 countries, we have built an exceptional network of talent.

Building on seven decades as a game-changing catalyst that prepares leaders to solve problems of global importance, Salzburg Global is expanding its capacity to propel ideas and strategies for lasting change. Seminar participants share knowledge of complex issues and of the barriers that inhibit progress. The Salzburg Global experience, they tell us, helps them channel frustration, renew their confidence, and open doors to breakthrough thinking and practical innovation. Through an array of continuing programs - on such topics as financial regulation, sustainability, medicine and health, cultural innovation, corporate governance, genocide prevention, the future of public service, and independent media - the Seminar takes a long view; it emphasizes programs that address systemic challenges on a multiyear basis. Central to extending our reach and impact is selecting the right partners - leading institutions working in our program fields that bring fresh ideas, an openness to challenge and revision, and a commitment to accelerate the most promising solutions.

For 70 years, Salzburg Global has developed a unique track record of supporting regions, institutions and sectors in transition. As a fully independent, non-profit organization, we have convened nearly six hundred sessions bridging cultural, ideological and geographic divides, launched cross-cultural educational programs that drive institutional change to scale, and created peace-building initiatives and networks. Today, Salzburg Global's scope has expanded. It has evolved from Salzburg Seminar in American Studies into Salzburg Global Seminar, attracting people from all over the world and taking on global-scale challenges. But its values have remained the same. The Seminar brings diverse groups to Schloss Leopoldskron in Austria to engage questions that are hard to ask elsewhere, to consider new possibilities, to explore solutions, and to effect positive change. The Seminar has left an indelible mark on communities around the world. Seminar participants played a central role in Eastern European government reforms after the collapse of communism, in efforts to bring peace to Northern Ireland, and in international War Crimes Tribunals for Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia. For 70 years, the Seminar has contributed to tackled some of the world's most complex challenges in unique and powerful ways: investing in individuals of immense promise who are working to solve important problems, people who may see the world in different ways, but who share a desire to make it better; bringing today's leaders into the same orbit with young innovators on their way to becoming next-generation leaders across the globe; reframing challenges that benefit from thinking that comes when diverse change-makers tackle shared problems; forging networks and collaborations that grow from and continue well beyond the Seminar experience; and connecting leading public and private institutions at the forefront of change to coordinate actions that can bring promising solutions to scale.
