CUSP Director Prof Tim Jackson gives the opening keynote and an in-depth workshop at the 46th St. Gallen Symposium – a high-profile annual conference designed to “capture and condense the most relevant debates currently shaping the world around us and making them center-stage.”
Within three days, 11-13 May, the conference programme offers an ambitious selection of content and debates, aiming “to shine a spotlight on growth and look at it from all sides – the good, the bad, and the ugly”. Other speakers include Tidjane Thiam, Gary Gillespie, Baron David de Rothschild and Peter Brabeck-Letmathe.
The full programme can be accessed on the St. Gallen Symposium website. A conference briefing paper is putting the programme in context. The proposed Twitter hashtag for the conference is #DebateGrowth.
The St. Gallen Symposium is a global gathering of “Leaders of Today and Leaders of Tomorrow” that takes place annually at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. It is organised by the International Students’ Committee (ISC), a team of students from the university. The aim is “to capture and condense the most relevant debates currently shaping the world around us and making them center-stage.”
