Managing Director of the International Federation for the Economy for the Common Good e.V.
Because the hut is on fire! – Because it is high time to do something. – Who shouldn’t be better suited to this than entrepreneurs; After all, it is in our literal sense to do something, it is one of our genuine tasks!
We all know about the problems that we should better tackle yesterday than today: climate change, the extinction of species, air pollution, the whirlpools of plastic waste in the oceans, the deforestation of the rainforests, water scarcity and much more; All of this has to do with the violation of human rights, with world hunger, with global inequality, with the greed for returns and the arrogant tax-saving concepts of some global corporations. It is a systemic problem that we need a systemic response to. The common good economy has developed a method that offers all types of companies an opportunity to break out of this system. The common good balance is the lever for every company to find its way and its contribution to the good of the whole. The public good balance is certainly not the only way! There are many ways and ways to make our economic system more sustainable. The common good economy movement supports all of these approaches. We love diversity and creativity. That is why we campaigned for the BEST ECONOMY forum from the start. It is a place for meeting and for exchanging ideas. It is the alternative to the World Economic Forum in Davos, which recently did not provide any impetus for change for a sustainable world. Let us learn from each other and mutually enrich one another. As a co-organizer from the very beginning, we look forward to the opportunity to develop our ideas and concepts together, to network and to formulate our points of view together.
