The 53rd annual St. Gallen Symposium will delve into the multifaceted, emerging challenges posed by scarcity and tackle the difficult questions they raise: To what extent can innovation, efficiency, and circular models help to deal with intensifying constraints? And where do we need to consider deeper, more radical shifts and ask whether less may, in fact, be more?

The Club of Rome and the St. Gallen Symposium are collaborating on a joint initiative for “A New Generational Contract” that researches, highlights, and advocates for cross-generational leadership and learning as a lever shift towards long-term, regenerative strategies in business and policy-making.
