We are now preparing the 7th edition of the ESTORIL CONFERENCES

Soon more details will be announced

Keep safe

Estoril Conferences 2019 livestream

Three days of conferences, thirty panels, 96 speakers, moderators and chairs. We have exchanged views regarding what we owe to one another and shared our thoughts about how we can build the world we dream about. It’s only natural to miss something.

But we have streamed everything and now you can watch the moments you have missed. Or watch again the speeches you loved more.

Empower Humanity
Change the world

The XXI century has seen an ever-increasing process of globalization and reduction of the role and power of States. In a world where information circulates at the speed of light, local problems have become global and a continuous flow of ideas connecting people all over the world has made it inconceivable for a nation to project its future in isolation.

The interdependencies of countries and peoples and the worldwide confluence of ideas allow us to rethink the concept of justice around four main topics.
