WELCOME TO THE WORLD HUMANITARIAN FORUM LONDON 2021

We invite you for the highly expected WHF LONDON 2021 that will take place in 19-20 May 2021 as a hybrid format. 

World Humanitarian Forum (WHF) is the largest and most inclusive nonpartisan forum in humanitarian aid and international development. WHF brings together decision-makers and opinion-formers in the public, private and non-profit sectors, as well as the next generation of partnership-builders. Through its annual WHF in London, WHF advances critical global discussions and transforms conversations into action, as well as provides a powerful forum to catalyse collaboration through shared-value approaches and social impact objectives.

Especially in times of crises, we should always remember one fact: “WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER”. At WHF we have aimed to bring forward discussions regarding the great reset, seeking to understand how we can build back stronger following the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has also highlighted our need for international cooperation, and that global challenges cannot be addressed in silos. We must cooperate and find common solutions to the issues we face at an international scale. 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this edition of the World Humanitarian Forum is predominantly digital. Aid&TradeInternational Disaster Management Exhibition and Emergency Show run along with World Humanitarian Forum  and delegates have access to these additional events without any further registration.

There are 5 Thematic Theatres, 3 dedicated exhibitions, 2 conferences, workshops and a high-level forum in the centre. It’s the perfect opportunity for governments, not-for profits, institutions and private sector leaders to showcase cutting-edge innovations, discuss global trends and unveil ground-breaking solutions to provoke discussion and inspire creativity in the humanitarian sector, which will help to improve the lives of millions in need.

Objectives

Objectives

As a Hybrid event, this year, WHF eases access and promotes inclusivity. The Forum’s aim is to provide a pedestal for the world’s greatest minds to discuss the “Global Reset Dialogue” and re-format many of the concepts and definitions. And the first one to start with is “Re-defining Humanitarianism”. WHF is a global call for action and we invite you to be part of this movement.

MAIN STAGE

MAIN STAGE

The pandemic has radically altered much of our lives around the world in both the short and long term. The consequences that have unfolded serve as a reminder that efforts to reduce poverty, fight climate change and create an economy that works for all require bold change. This is why the need of "Global Reset" discussion has started as a radical plan to alter our economy in a way that reflects the threat of climate change and allows all citizens to prosper.

This edition of the World Humanitarian Forum is predominantly digital. WHF London will analyse the future of humanitarianism, what the “Global Reset” means for humanitarian aid and international development and how this reset can be turned into reality.
