Geneva Forum on Social Change


The Geneva Forum on Social Change is an annual event hosted by the University of Geneva International Organizations MBA (IOMBA) Program that convenes discussion on sustainable social and economic development. The 2012 topic of the Geneva Forum on Social Change, which took place from the 20th to the 21st of April, was Innovation and Co-Creation for Development.

The forum provides a platform to discuss and showcase models of development in times of economic crisis and persistent social divides. Under the theme of Innovation & Co-creation for Development, it brought together entrepreneurs, managers from businesses, NGOs, International Organizations, and academia to focus on innovation and partnership as tools for global change.

The Humanistic Management Center's Ernst von Kimakowitz gladly accepted to give a talk and moderate two panels during this event. In the conference opening panel on the 20th of April he spoke about reversing the rationalities we often deploy in the three domains of development, economic policy and business. Moderated by Aurore Bui of Softweb, Brindusa Fidanza of the World Economic Forum and Yann Borgstedt of the Womanity Foundation were also on this panel.

On the morning panel of the 21st of April Ernst gave an introductory presentation on the Center's three stepped approach to humanistic management providing a framework for the panel discussion on Working with and through business to address global challenges. The panelists were Steve Andrews of Solar Aid, Cheryl Hicks of Quadia Impact Finance and Nichole Brown of UNICEF.

Lastly, Ernst moderated an afternoon panel on Progress and challenges of transforming multi-stakeholder partnerships with Jem Bendell of Lifeworth Consulting, Lena Staafgard of Better Cotton Initiative, Shea Gopaul an Independent Consultant and Nichole Brown of UNICEF forming a lively and diverse panel.

In addition to the panel discussions, workshops, film screenings and an exhibition was held with plenty of room to mingle and network.

For further information please download the full program here or visit the conference website.

You can also take a look at the conference's twitter page where the passion for discussing development and a meaningful integration of private sector actors in development efforts was very encouraging as the following tweets show: "Hearing about changing development goals in our 1st panel from Ernst von Kimakowitz…” "Amazing how people will choose to discuss Development on a Friday night!” "The panel was amazing…”
