What makes the GES special?
Introducing the Global Economic Symposium
“At the GES almost everybody is talking about how we need to bring social relations and altruism into economics in a better way. So things are moving in a right direction — especially here.”
This quote from Nobel Laureate George A. Akerlof is one of many quotes by GES participants that acknowledge the distinct character of the Symposium. As a forum that is solution-oriented, its ultimate goal is to formulate concrete policies and business strategies to tackle global problems. At the same time, it is research-based, making facts and knowledge a top priority.
If you want to learn more about the GES, the process, past topics and solutions as well as selected speakers, we put together a detailed PDF file with a lot of information. You can download the PDF here (0.9 MB)
We also a have a video clip for you about the GES, in which numerous participants of the symposium share their views on why the GES is so different compared to conferences. Enjoy!
