Symi Symposium

Step into the Future – The 26th International Symi Symposium: “Prometheus Unbound: Power Re-imagined for a Demos of Peace,Equity and Sustainability”

Our Symposium this year is set in the beautiful environment of Greece, in Pythagorion, Samos between June 29th to July 3rd, 2024 including a visit with additional program in Kusadasi and Ephesus, Turkey on July 2nd. We embark on a thought-provoking journey as we hope to explore forward-thinking and transformative ideas about how power can be re-claimed and used in innovative ways to benefit society as a whole, focusing on peace, equity, and sustainability.

Why This Symposium Is a must-attend:

  • Confronting Global Crises: Tackling major challenges from climate change and pandemic preparedness to the unregulated advancements in AI and technology, this symposium is poised to address the most pressing current and future global issues.
  • Redefining Democracy: We delve into a critical analysis of the current state of democracy worldwide, examining the rise of extreme demagoguery and ideologies, the decay – or transformation – of traditional political structures, the concerning spread of corruption, inequities and the role of social media platforms in dominating our public space and discourse.
  • Navigating Conflicts in search of Peace: Explore new approaches to resolving ongoing conflicts, how climate and technology are shaping the nature of conflict as well as weaponry, yet how these can become a catalyst for peace. As always, we will include debates on ongoing conflict situations such as in Ukraine, the Middle East, the Balkans, Africa, and how these are affected by global geo-political tensions.
  • Fostering Innovative Paths Forward: We do not simply discuss problems; we are actively seeking and formulating groundbreaking, actionable solutions. We seek to make this symposium a workshop for change-makers.

A Gathering of activists and visionaries:

Join a very special and open-minded group of intellectuals, politicians, Nobel laureates, entrepreneurs, diplomats, scientists, and activists.

Our past symposia have featured many luminaries who not only actively participate but also provide mentorship for young leaders who attend parallel activities to our Symposium. This leadership mentorship is becoming a major part of our ongoing work.

A Legacy of Impact:

The Symi Symposium isn’t just an event; it’s a catalyst for change. Celebrating 25 years of groundbreaking dialogue and collaboration, we have influenced significant policy initiatives and fostered cross-cultural networks and partnerships and continue to do so.
