The equitable and sustainable design of urban environments will be fundamental in determining the state of the planet and the health of societies that we bequeath to future generations. Future City Forum 2019 has partnered with the Parks for the Planet Forum, a ten-year collaboration to reconnect people and nature in an urbanized world. Launched in 2015, it aims to improve human and societal well-being by expanding access to nature-rich urban spaces, increasing investments in urban conservation, and creating dynamic partnerships between people, cities, and protected area systems.

Founder, Diplomatic Courier, World in 2050 & Global Talent Summit

Ana C. Rold is the Founder and Publisher of Diplomatic Courier, the flagship media network and magazine for top diplomats in Washington, DC, New York, Brussels and Geneva. Rold is also the Founder of Medauras Global LLC, a global communications firm for “The Connected Generation.” Medauras specializes in custom publications for organizations and institutions that are focused on a multitude of strategic concepts of national and global importance.

In 2012, Rold founded the global futuristic think tank, The World in 2050. The think tank has convened over 10,000 multi-stakeholders in the private and public sectors, partners and futurists, through a series of global summits and forums, research papers and reports, and digital and print media, to stimulate discussion and solutions on seven megatrends, including infrastructure, jobs, transportation, food security, health, wealth, and future cities.

Since 2009 Rold has served as the Editor-in-Chief of the annual leadership publications of the G7 Summit (formerly the G8), the G20 and B20 Summits, and APEC Summit.  She has led the editorial production of these publications for the summits in Italy, Canada, South Korea, the United States, France, Germany as well as NATO in the United States, the G20 in Mexico, and the APEC Summit in Vietnam, Philippines, the United States and Russia.

In tandem with her publishing and editorial work, Rold has taught Comparative Politics and Political Science at Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies since 2006. At Northeastern, she has also served as Director of the Cyprus Program and co-Director for the Egypt Program for Northeastern’s Dialogue of Civilizations Initiative.

Her advocacy and mentorship on behalf of women and women’s global issues extend around the globe. In 2012, Rold was invited to serve as a Mentor for the inaugural cohort of women fellows of Mrs. Laura Bush’s Women’s Initiative at the George W. Bush Presidential Center and the George W. Bush Institute. In addition, since 2011 Rold has served as a Member of Women’s Democracy Network Advisory Council, chaired by Mrs. Cindy McCain. As part of her position at WDN, in 2012 and 2016 Rold convened a group of women leaders from Afghanistan and Pakistan through a program funded by USAID called Pakistan-Afghan Women’s Forum for Peace and Democracy (PAWFPD). Rold, through her formal background in peace and conflict resolution served as a convener and mediator to the groups’ two meetings—one in Istanbul and one in Dubai. During the meetings, Rold held a negotiation and mediation skills training for the women. In the 2015 meeting, Rold served as the editor and publisher of the women’s policy brief Women, Peace and Security Policy Brief, which was published in the Diplomatic Courier.

Rold is the recipient of the 2018 American Women for International Understanding (AWIU’s) Internationalism Award for her exceptional work as an advocate for women’s global issues and a mentor to women leaders at home and abroad.

Rold is a member of the National Press Club (NPC), an Advisory Board Member of the Center for Education Diplomacy, and an Advisory Board Member of the Council of Women’s Democracy Network (WDN) in Washington, DC.  Rold received a Master’s in International Peace and Conflict Resolution, with a focus on Alternative Dispute Resolution at American University and a Bachelor’s Degree in International Affairs at Northeastern University.  She speaks five languages.
