2020 Theme: Action Plans for Positive Change

The world has been disrupted in an unprecedented way. The global pandemic and its cascading effects are leading us toward unparalleled challenges…

Or could it in fact be leading us to an evolutionary leap forward as we reconsider and redesign what human civilization looks like?

How can we pivot from this period of crisis into a new phase of human history — built on peace, sustainability, justice, health, and shared prosperity?  

How do we redesign our world to liberate more of humanity’s potential to shine?

How can you make your contribution to a more harmonious, unified world?

The Shift Summit & Music Festival addresses these questions and more by convening a groundbreaking gathering of over 250 visionaries and artists from around the world to share a much-needed infusion of hope, positivity, and practical strategies for how we can shift our society and ourselves to fulfill the dream of a planet that truly works for all.

In this crucial time — heralding both upheaval and regeneration — you can join forces with some of the most inspiring thought leaders and musical artists leading the way to a peaceful, thriving world. The Shift Summit & Music Festival happens online over four days, culminating on September 21 for the International Day of Peace.

If you are here to be part of the team that turns things around and redesigns human civilization for the good, this is THE online gathering for you.
