International Business Summits

Purpose & Approach:

The Future Economy Forum hosts and co-hosts international summits around the world that bring together leaders from business, agriculture, finance, government and other sectors.

The purpose is to support the emergence of a necessary economic mainstream that integrates economic success and positive impact.

We bring together those who have led this transformation for decades with those who still grapple to understand and implement it. Our focus is not on the past but on what we can do today and tomorrow to transition our own organizations and the overall economy that in one way or the other we all co-create. 

As always our focus is on concrete outcomes that go beyond the momentary meetings, which can however inspire us to act and create a basis for meaningful collaboration.
