The Estoril Conferences are being organized using a "problem-solving" approach to globalization and are based on the realization that while we face increasing global challenges they require both global and local solutions.
The target audience of the Conferences will mainly be Governement officials, politicians, CEOs and managers, scholar, studentes, journalists and opinion makers.
The first Estoril Conferences meeting, entitled "Global Challenges, Local Answers" will be held on 7-9 May 2009 at the Estoril Congress Centre.
The Estoril Conferences are jointly organized by the Municipality of Cascais, the DNA Cascais and the Institute for Strategic and International Studies.
