At this Global Forum, we aim to address the critical issue of trust in our institutions, in the media, and in each other, especially in times of democratic backsliding worldwide.

We are genuinely looking forward to your participation at the Global Forum. Your insights and contributions are going to be part of our journey to deepen our understanding and reinforce trust within our democratic systems. 

We are eager to engage with you in meaningful discussions and cannot wait to welcome you to the beautiful city of Bucharest.
