What's it about? 

The St. Gallen Symposium is a two-day conference taking place at the University of St.Gallen (Switzerland) in May. Every year key decision-makers from the fields of economics, politics, science, and society take part in the symposium to meet and exchange with the next generation of leaders.

The entire conference is organised by the International Students' Committee. Its a Team of 35 students from the University of St.Gallen who pause their studies for 10 months to engage in the realization of an intergenerational dialogue.

Revisiting Freedom at the 50th St. Gallen Symposium

In the face of populism, climate change and rapid technological disruption, liberalism – with individual freedom at its core – has come under attack. At the 50th St. Gallen Symposium, three generations will discuss the future of individual, economic, and political liberty in light of key challenges of our time. Which aspects of freedom are currently under attack and call for a strong defence? And where will we need to recalibrate our concept of freedom, or the balance we strike with other values, such as equality, sustainability, and security?

  • Freedom and its political contestants

  • Freedom and environmental degradation

  • Freedom and rapid technological change
