Echoing the concerns and objectives of the leaders of the world economy who will meet in Davos to lay the foundations for “a world of cohesion and sustainability”, SIGEF by Horyou has chosen to display its own commitment to sustainable development. It therefore organizes an event alongside the event that presents a complementary and united vision of a better and inclusive world.
Building on its theme “Together, let’s build a smarter future”, SIGEF will bring a social and ethical global dimension to the Davos summit. The event will take place on the morning of January 22 at the Kirchner Museum. It will open with a networking breakfast. The program will be structured around four panels, which will address the most difficult challenges facing the global economy.
Disruptive technologies, future of finance, UN goals for sustainable development and women’s empowerment; these are the subjects that will be debated. “SIGEF has set itself the task of solving the most important global problems and we are delighted to start high-level discussions in front of the expert audience in Davos . In this new technological era, it is important to us to forge an intelligent future for the planet by bringing together, in their diversity, certain actors of the positive changes that we wish to see, “explains Yonathan Parienti, founder and CEO of Horyou, the organizer of SIGEF.
