Future Economy Solutions

Summit Program

Pre-Summit Optional Excursion - November 4th

For those who arrive early, we offer an opportunity to join an extraordinary experience in the lead up to the Summit, connecting with other participants from the Sekem Regenerative Leadership Retreat & Future Economy Solutions Summit.

A unique opportunity to visit to one of the world wonders after official closing hours: The Pyramids of Giza are not only breathtakingly beautiful but also a stark reminder how mighty civilizations can end if their economies and societies don’t align with the urgent needs and opportunities of their time. During a guided visit and an Arabian cuisine dinner, we begin our dialog about how to evolve our companies, economies and societies so that they can successfully address our challenges and opportunities.
