Dialogues towards a constructive agenda
In a context where political polarization has become an overtly global phenomenon, establishing a dialogue between the public and private sectors is essential to reach a constructive agenda that benefits all.
With the theme “Dialogues towards a constructive agenda”, Brazil Forum UK 2019 looks to the future: what challenges do the new government and civil society face to solve structural problems and create a path towards sustainable and inclusive development in Brazil, and what solutions do they propose?
The Brazil Forum UK’s fourth edition, which will take place on 18th-19th May-2019, will gather world experts from a wide range of fields to debate compelling and urgent questions on the economic, social and environmental development of Brazil.
