The European Forum Alpbach is a space and place for the emergence of reflection and action. It brings together young people from Europe and from all over the world with the most innovative minds from politics, business, civil society, culture, and science to drive ideas for a strong and democratic Europe. Club of Rome Co-President Sandrine Dixson-Declève will be speaking at the European Forum Alpbach 2023 plenary session – Why Women Should Run the World?
Why Women Should Run the World?
Saturday, 26 August, 17:00-18:00 CET
Women have historically been underrepresented in leadership roles and have faced various forms of discrimination and barriers to accessing high-ranking positions. Studies have shown that women bring collaborative leadership styles and a focus on social issues that can lead to more equitable and inclusive policies. How do they overcome the obstacles they face? How can women set their own agenda and shape their respective fields?
Session objective: Build your understanding by learning about personal insights and experiences as well as developments in science, society, politics or world affairs.
Along with Sandrine Dixson-Declève, speakers will include Katja Gentinetta, philosopher and author, Kaidi Ruusalepp, Founder and CEO of Funderbeam, Jana Degrott, Co-Founder of We Belong Europe, Margot Wallström, Sweden’s former Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Yana Barinova, the EFA23 Arts and Culture Guest Curator.
Sandrine will also be participating in the following events:

Hike From Momentum to Action
Monday, 28 August, 14:00-16:30 CET
The momentum to make climate action happen is as big as never before. Knowledge and awareness about the palpable climate crisis are strong, solutions exist aplenty, yet satisfying policy actions are lacking and frustration and anger are growing. What are the positive social tipping points societies need? What are prime examples of action that pave the way towards more impact?
