Our vision

The Positive Economy Forum is the international network of those who put the interest of generations to come at the heart of their thinking and acting.

Whereas the short term dominates the economy and society in general, the Positive Economy Forum was born out of the conviction that it is critical to restore the long-term priority in our decisions and actions. Why? Because it is the only way to address the economic, environmental, technological, social and political challenges that are in store for the world in 2030.

The Positive Economy Forum is a bridge, providing linkage across different scales: from the CEO of a big company to a social entrepreneur, from an economist to an artist.

The common point between all these actors

The will to implement new models, in the economic field but also in other sectors of society, that care about their long term impact and take into account the interest of generations to come.

The Positive Economy Forum’s conviction

That viable and positive answers to the challenges of today and tomorrow will emerge from the exchange and the dialogue between actors coming from different backgrounds pursuing the same goal.

The heart of its action and reflection

The economic, financial and entrepreneurial practices that take into account the interest of generations to come. To this extent, these practices have an impact that goes beyond the economy. They are an answer to global issues.

To set up a positive society that redirects the economy for the benefit of generations to come, our network gathers, raises awareness and debates today’s world and tomorrow’s solutions.
