The Copenhagen Democracy Summit 2021

The Copenhagen Democracy Summit 2021 plans to take place in hybrid format on May 10-11, 2021. It will draw participants in both physical and virtual form from business executives, political leaders, activists and other democracy supporters to discuss the future of global democracy, US leadership and post-COVID recovery, technology and democratic trust.

Joe Biden opened the first Copenhagen Democracy Summit in 2018. In 2021 as President, he will host the world’s first global summit on democracy.
Our forum plans to help setting the agenda and will unite political, business and media leaders, democracy activists and advocates to bring fresh ideas to stem the tide of authoritarian advance and put democracy back on the front foot.
