Programme - European Forum Alpbach, 15-31/08/2018

European Forum Alpbach (EFA)

The European Forum Alpbach was founded in August 1945 as one of the first international political and intellectual events in post-war Europe. It has since established itself as an important hub for interdisciplinary exchange of ideas,where world-renowned scientists, economists as well as politicians and academics engage in a prosperous dialogue with university students. Each summer, more than 5.000 people from over 60 countries com together in the Tyrolean mountain village of Alpbach to experience this unique atmosphere.

This year’s forum will took place from August 15th–31st 2018with the theme of “Diversity and Resilience”.

Diversity and Resilience | Aug 15 to 31, 2018

Our age is defined by rapid transformation. The way we live, think and work is subject to constant change, giving rise to a multitude of new challenges. Now more than ever, we need to act purposefully, consider diverse courses of action, and come up with cutting-edge solutions.

With that said, diversity is recognized and encouraged as an opportunity in many areas. It has a positive impact on the strength, robustness, and innovative power, that is on the resilience of our society, environment, economy and culture. At the same time, however, diversity can become a strain and lead to the collapse of entire systems. How can we handle crises? Are our systems – from finance to health – suited to master the challenges to come? How can we ensure lasting peace, prosperity and democracy? Is resilience the key to a successful future?

We invite you to examine the relationship between “Diversity and Resilience” together with a host of experts from the worlds of business, politics, culture and the civil society. Immerse yourself in in international setting full of new ideas, mindsets, and contacts. Let us join forces to answer the great questions of today!
