Whereas the reign of emergency dominates the economy and the society in general, the Positive Economy Forum was born out of the conviction that it is critical to restore the long-term priority in our decisions and actions. Why? Because it is the only way to address the economic, environmental, technological, social and political challenges that are in store for the 2030 world. To set up a positive society that redirects the economy toward the consideration of generations to come, their network raises awareness and thinks today’s world and tomorrow’s solutions.
They are gathering, several times a year in the Positive Economy Forum context, company directors, NGO leaders, social entrepreneurs, thinkers, artists, idea-carrying citizens or innovating projects-developers. By facilitating the emulation between experts during brainstorming sessions on global issues. By producing analysis and creating measurement tools for a better assessment and understanding of the world. By giving to see and to understand the positive economy through artistic exhibitions and educational initiatives.
Initiated in 2012 in France by the PlaNet Finance group, the Positive economy Network is rolling out abroad. Their definition of positive economy? “The positive economy is an economy that aims at serving future generations by fostering a sustainable and inclusive growth that would be respectful both of the environment and of the people. The positive economy is at the heart of tomorrow’s economy; it is at once what is currently growing up beneath the surface of the planetary society and at the same time the core of the answer to the greatest crisis we are currently facing and we will have to face.”
