“Vilnius Conference” is dedicated to the 700 th anniversary of Vilnius, addressing the most challenging economic, climate, energy and education issues, both globally and locally.
Why now and why in Vilnius? As our economies recover from the pandemic at the same time facing new dangers, disruption and Europe’s largest refugee crisis caused by the invasion of Russia in Ukraine, the policy focus is shifting to supply chain disruptions and rising energy prices, along with the challenges of inflation and food security, while the alarming clock of climate change is ticking more loudly.
Being on the crossroad between the West and the East, Vilnius is uniquely placed as a hub for dialogue and sharing ideas. Leading thinkers, economists and activists will convene at a two-day conference for a creative exchange of ideas and shaping a vision for the future.
The conference is organised by the Association “Investors’ Forum” in partnership with Vilnius University, YPO and Go Vilnius. The conference will be opened by the President of Lithuania His Excellency Gitanas Nausėda.
The programme was inspired by the world known humanist, a leading expert on economy and governance, Israel Prize 2020 winner prof. Avishay Braverman.
