From May 27th to May 29th, Nova School of Business & Economics (Nova SBE) will welcome in its bright new campus, in Carcavelos, the sixth edition of the Estoril Conferences, a bi-annual meeting, promoted by the Municipality of Cascais, that discusses universal topics and that, in this edition, will have some of the most influent personalities of nowadays rethinking the concept of justice.
“Empowering Humanity: From local to global justice” is the theme that prompts the 2019 edition of the Estoril Conferences, which this year will take place at Nova SBE on May 27th, 28th, and 29th. For three days, the most renowned activists, decision-makers, business people, philanthropists, and Nobel prize winners will rethink the concept of justice through four main topics: human rights and duties, climate justice, global poverty and inequality, and technology and development.
These will be developed comprehensively through stimulating debates that will have renowned national and international speakers who will not only contribute to making these topics assume a less pragmatic perspective but also share their own stories.
Among the confirmed speakers are Ahmad Nawaz (Education and Peace Activist), Bernard Kouchner (Co-Founder of Médecins Sans Frontières and Médecins du Monde & 1999 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate), Denis Mukwege (2018 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate), Edmund Phelps (2006 Nobel Prize Laureate in Economics), Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa (President of the Portuguese Republic), among other well-known guests.
Nova SBE welcomes the event for the first time since its launch, in its Carcavelos Campus intending as a community dedicated to talent and knowledge, to also promote humanity to change the world.
