Under the auspices of the Ministry of Environment of Egypt, host of COP 27
BEFORE & DURING COP 27
SCALING SOLUTIONS FOR
A NEW ECONOMIC MAINSTREAM
Join us to scale solutions for climate change and a new economic mainstream that integrates business success and economic development with the regeneration of people, societies and nature.
We convene senior leaders from business, agriculture, finance and investment to collaborate with experts and policy makers to meet our urgent challenges and opportunities.
The UN’s Paris Climate Treaty became a force in part because policy makers partnered with future-oriented economy leaders. This year, COP needs a bold and inspiring economic presence to advance concrete solutions. Let's be that presence.

REGENERATIVE LEADERSHIP RETREAT
NOV 2-4, 2022 | SEKEM, EGYPT
FUTURE ECONOMY SOLUTIONS SUMMIT
NOV 5-6*, 2022 | CAIRO, EGYPT
The Future of Business & Economy
The Summit focuses on solutions along the entire value chain that integrate business success and economic development with the regeneration of people, societies and nature. This Regenerative Value Creation is already the success recipe of many participating companies. And if we work together to scale these solutions, it can become the DNA of a new economic mainstream.
The Future of Agriculture
Farmers from all continents demonstrate that regenerative agriculture is more productive than conventional farming. It is a key to solving hunger and the global climate crisis. It regenerates biodiversity, soil, water, health and the incomes of farmers and their communities and thus reduces forced migration. If ever there was a silver bullet, this is it.
The Real ESG Investment and Finance
Integrates financial success with positive impact. It needs better measurements and auditing to resolve green washing. Following the development of regulations, profit and risk assessments and values-based investments it increasingly becomes a key to accessing capital markets. And it is a crucial to scaling this new mainstream of business and economy.
These 3 fields will be considered from 5 interaction lenses:
- Market Trends and Future Scenarios
- Concrete Cases in Business, Agriculture and Finance
- People: Talent, Leadership, Culture and Education
- Science, High Tech and Broad Tech solutions
- Rules of the game: Measurement, Public Policies and Laws
Inspiring Locations in Nature and Culture
To inspire learning and deep dialogues, innovative co-creation and relationships that lead to concrete action, we meet at Sekem’s Heliopolis University, the Middle East’s largest sustainable development campus. We dine under the stars at the Pyramids, the Nile and in Cairo’s ancient Citadel - ancient centers of power, science and spirituality.
