Important names of the corporate, political and philanthropic worlds will be present during the 2-day conference, which will cover such subjects as Sustainable Development Goals, Islamic Business and Finance, Countering Extremism and Women Leadership. The opening ceremony will be led by Dr Sheikha Aisha bint Faleh Al-Thani, Chair of World Congress of Muslim Philanthropists, Shaarik H. Zafar, Special Representative to Muslim Communities, Mohammad AbdulAziz Al Naimi, CEO of Silatech, and the former prime minister of Romania Victor-Viorel Ponta.

Yonathan Parienti, the CEO and founder of Horyou, will participate as a speaker on the Perspective of Philanthropy panel where he will be presenting for the first time to the Turkish audience Spotlight, the first global social currency for economic inclusion. Speaking on how to leverage social media for social change, Parienti will be surrounded by other experts of the humanitarian field as Amy Singer, from Tel Aviv University, Farhan Latif, president of El-Hibri Foundation and Iqbal Noor Alim from the Aga Khan Development Network.

“Horyou is in a global campaign to introduce Spotlight, an impactful currency which aims to enhance a fairer capital circulation to all publics from different cultures and regions”, says Yonathan. “The world is increasingly connected and, by bringing economic inclusion, Spotlight will make the best use of the power of social networking”.

In the last few weeks, Spotlight was presented to media, organizations, experts and public from Morocco, Brazil, Senegal, China and now Turkey. By creating a global network of Spotlight users and supporters, Horyou will benefit and redistribute capital to more than 300 million people by 2018.
