DINNER RECEPTION

 


 

As we celebrate 200 years of the savings bank model in Austria, we understand that providing saving accounts to citizens in times of fast transformation in the 19th century was as audacious as it proved sustainable. ERSTE Foundation started as a social business. The savings bank model was inclusive in scope and conservative in risk. It turned into a pillar of the European model of empowerment and wellbeing of the many.

Today, how can we realize a holistic concept of prosperity for all? What will be private and what will be public goods, services, institutions but also responsibilities? How can we lead the profound transformations ahead of us – on climate, technology, and on living together – and get those transformations right? Who will forge new alliances of responsibility? The audacity of initiative is what we now need.
