The purpose generation.
Let us be the space where we ask the questions, open the debate and lead the way forward
Whatever the doubts, the challenges, or the opportunities, there is one thing we are sure of:
WE ARE HERE.
The time where we stop sitting on the back seat and start taking action.
The Estoril Conferences is now part of Nova School of Business & Economics.
Part of Nova University of Lisbon and with 40 years of consistent growth, Nova SBE is among the top worldwide rankings, with triple crown accreditations, and member of several top-level organizations of leading international business schools, internationally recognized for its high-quality standards.
A school for all who believes in a brighter and better future and committed to participating in the positive transformation of our world. A space where ideas and ideals can flourish safely, freely.
We believe we have a commitment to every single person who continues to wonder, discover, create. To all of those who keep trying to improve themselves and create meaningful impact. We believe we should support those who strive to be better: as people, professionals, leaders, and citizens.
Tomorrow as yesterday, we are a school with a role to play. A role we cannot avoid or delay.
As a disruptive European School of Business and Economics, we want to give stage to the purpose generation and all of those who want to change and impact the world. We want to build an intergenerational dialogue that contributes to solutions for the world’s most urgent challenges, towards a sustainable and inclusive common future.
We are committed to develop and train the leaders of tomorrow, curious minds and resilient souls, establishing a culture of meaningful impact and collective potential to keep growing.
We will activate a community of global citizens, passionate about taking action, to push the world forward.
About the Municipality of Cascais
Privileged located on the Atlantic Coast, Cascais has been on the spotlight as an exclusive tourist destination, but also for hosting several international conferences and events.
Historically, Cascais was the famous refuge for the European aristocracy and elite. From kings to diplomats, filmmakers and cinema artists, to writers, businessmen and bankers, they all arrived attracted by its safe environment (endured by Portugal’s neutrality in conflict), mild climate, clear waters, luxury hotels, and the Estoril Casino – where Ian Fleming’s was inspired to film the first James Bond novel «Casino Royale».
Times changed, yet the charm, glamour and essence still remain. Among the «2014 Sustainable Destinations Global Top 100» and awarded in 2014 with the «Climate Star Award» and «Vistas – VISION Innovation for Sustainable Tourism Awards», Cascais has been focused on accomplishing diverse policies and initiatives for decarbonization and environment sustainability.
The Municipality of Cascais is proud to be the Co-Host of the Estoril Conferences.
Since 2009 Cascais has been the international stage for the past six successful editions. Several Nobel prize winners, Heads of State and high-level leaders have travel to Portugal, for an open and impactful dialogue on global challenges.
Nova School of Business and Economics is now the new host for the Estoril Conferences, aiming to engage with the younger generations to jointly find innovative and sustainable solutions for our common future.
A new home, the very same commitment with liberty, pluralism and humanism. That’s our DNA.
Be most welcome to Cascais.
With the support of the ones who want to inspire change
