The next St. Gallen Symposium in May 2019 will debate the topic “Capital for Purpose”, addressing the urgency of working with present and future decision makers in developing action plans to overcome short-term thinking. The St. Gallen Symposium examines questions of how current activities like protectionist trade policies will affect long-term prosperity with the conviction that the time has come to counter short-termism and start doing ‘business as unusual’.
Climate change, digital transformation and cultural shifts associated with millennials are new parameters that must be considered in the use of capital. Today, an increasing number of young entrepreneurs and employees give equal weight to their economic, social, and environmental missions. This trend was underlined by the recent Global Perspectives Barometer study about the future of work, published in April 2018 by GfK Verein and St. Gallen Symposium. Young leaders and employees are working to revitalise a concept of capitalism based on values and enlightened self-interest. The St. Gallen Symposium offers a world-class conference setting to foster the crucial dialogue between generations, where, together with promising young thinkers, today’s senior leaders will revisit and expand the purpose of capital.More than 20 top speakers from politics and economics have already confirmed their attendance at the next Symposium, including Heng Sweet Keat, Minister for Finance of Singapore, Mark Tercek, President and CEO of the Nature Conservancy, and Piyush Gupta, CEO, Director of DBS Group, and Ingazio Cassis, Head of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs.
