The objective of the first edition of “Building Bridges” in 2019 was to bring together diverse stakeholders in dialogue around the issues at stake. More than 1000 Swiss and international stakeholders were in attendance, including the President of the Swiss Confederation, the Director-General of UN Geneva, and numerous CEOs and opinion leaders representing NGOs, business, academia and other international organizations.
