7000 participants, 380 speakers, 67 sessions and controversies… the 23rd Rencontres Économiques d’Aix-en-Provence recreated hope.

3 days of debates open to all and free of charge

Business leaders, academics, heads of state and government, trade union representatives, students, actors from the associative world… 380 high-level personalities from all walks of life debated the major economic, political and social issues.

Live from Aix-en-Provence, more than 60 interactive sessions and debates were broadcast live to allow everyone to take part in the exchanges from all over the world.

1 Theme: Renewing Hope

For the first time and in a very limited time, we are witnessing the convergence of economic, social, health, ecological and geostrategic crises. Faced with this unprecedented situation, which is so difficult to grasp, and faced with the temptation to give in to pessimism and resignation, we must act and create the conditions for a way out of the crisis. To do this, we need to recreate hope.

The innovative logic of these 23rd Meetings is based on two pillars: that of hope in the face of uncertainty (Friday) and that of choices informed by debates and controversies (Saturday). To make these rebounds a reality, fifteen sessions held on Sunday will make it possible to record the major choices of these Meetings.
