The World Humanitarian Forum features leading philanthropists, former leaders, NGOs and private sector from Oxfam, UN, WHO, Microsoft Philanthropies, Google, KPMG, Red Cross and ICRC. 

The World Humanitarian Forum is a high-profile, two-day event that brings together prominent leaders from the public and private sectors, as well as international thought leaders and pioneers from global aid and international development communities to learn, network, supply and source. It is expected to attract more than 3000 global public and private sector officials from over 50 countries. 

The World Humanitarian Forum 2020 will focus on “Shaping the Future for a Better Tomorrow” with a special focus on youth (human capital), refugees, sustainable development, new funding models and climate change. Our aim is to change the narrative – from aid to investment; from hope to possibility.

“World Humanitarian Forum as a concept is a place for people to come together to make a change and call for action. We aim to keep the discussions open, brave and thought-provoking.” - Feraye Ozfescioglu, CEO, WHF
