About the Forum

Climate and Energy for The Top Leaders Under Forty: Tipping Points gathers the top leaders under forty years old from around the world to discuss one of the most pressing challenges the Millennial generation is inheriting: how to balance mitigating and adapting to climate change with the need for secure and reliable energy to fuel our future. Competitively selected from around the world, delegates include elected officials, senior advisors to heads-of-state, rising executives at top global companies, entrepreneurs and young CEOs, internationally renowned artists, civil society actors, journalists, academics, and other leaders at the cutting edge of global trends all under the age of forty.

A Global & Bipartisan Conversation Between Past, Present, and Future Leaders: Tipping Points is a bipartisan and cross-generational dialogue about the future, featuring a lineup of senior speakers alongside young leaders that represent the full spectrum of views on energy and climate from both sides of the Atlantic, including former US Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, former EPA Administrator Gov. Christie Todd Whitman, Chairman and CEO of the Libra Group George Logothetis, CEO of Meridiam Thierry Deau, and Campaign Director for Greenpeace USA Leila Deen, among many others.

Inspired, Interactive & Unconventional: Tipping Points promises an inspired and unconventional experience featuring panel discussions, TED-style talks, film screenings, and the co-painting by delegates of a mural that will hang prominently in Washington, DC following the event to provide a sustained call-to-action to solve this global issue.

A Global Leadership Transition: Millennials are the largest generational cohort on Earth and already occupy executive roles in key institutions and firms around the world. With each passing year, they acquire more power to shape the future. As this leadership transition unfolds, Tipping Points aims to cement itself as the preeminent gathering for top decision makers in the Millennial generation.

Organizing Partners: Tipping Points is an annual gathering organized by the Millennium Leadership Program (MLP), the Atlantic Council’s center for rising leaders. The 2017 Tipping Points conference, focused on climate change and the global energy transition, is organized in partnership with the Ecologic Institute, a German institution for applied interdisciplinary environmental research and policy analysis, as part of a joint initiative, the Emerging Leaders in Energy and Environmental Policy Network (ELEEP – www.eleep.eu), with seed funding from the European Commission and conference support from corporate and foundation donations.
