Where the future begins


Welcome to the registration page of the SEF.Academy

Here you have the unique opportunity to apply for participation in the exclusive special programme of the Swiss Economic Forum (SEF) 2022 for young companies, young politicians and scientists. The 25 selected can look forward to the Leadership Day with the International Institute for Management Development (IMD) on 2 June 2022 as well as participation in the networking evening and the second conference day of SEF.2022. Seize this opportunity to exchange ideas and network with decision-makers in the Swiss economy.


Climate change is undoubtedly the defining challenge for humanity in the 21st century. But where is the world heading in terms of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues? And what does this mean for companies, for policy makers and for us as consumers?

At this year's SEF.Academy, organized in collaboration with the International Institute for Management Development (IMD), we will look beyond the current hype around ESG and sustainability and instead examine the economic incentives that contribute to greenhouse gases and climate change.
By understanding these drivers, we can also understand past policy responses and try to anticipate new policy measures.
Finally, by grasping the changing environment for consumers and businesses, we can discuss the challenges, risks and opportunities that the future holds for us. Join the discussion and apply now.


  • Participation in Leadership Day:
    - Status quo: drivers of greenhouse gas emissions
    - The role of regulation: past and current measures
    - Future outlook: challenges, risks and opportunities
    - Networking evening at SEF

At the end of the event, participants receive an IMD Leadership Diploma.
