International Innovation Conference
Our mission is to inspire, empower, and connect people to change their world.
That mission begins in Geneva, where we are hosting the International Innovation Conference (IIC).
But it extends to all our member-states. Learn more about the IIC below.
Understanding the IIC //
The Agency uses the opportunity of its annual General Assembly and the WSA General Assembly to organize the IIC. The first IIC will be held in Geneva in September 2022 where members and applicants to membership will present their organisations, their plans and their accomplishments in support of the mission in front of other members and Ministers of Agency and WSA Member-States.
During the IIC, WSA Member-States will select business members and applicants to membership to join public and private partnerships and venture projects and the Agency will establish with them partnerships in accordance with the WSA economic model.
Presented by Perry Geerlings,
President of the Agency
The IIC will engage our members and foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and international SDG agendas.
IIC OPEN EVENT
For those who are not members, we will host an Open Event to encourage dialogue on which ideas, thoughts and questions can be expressed and tackled in an open environment. Participants will be able to debate and interact on controversial issues around improving the state of the world. For that purpose, we welcome a diverse public to listen, participate and share thoughts and experiences.
This year the theme of the Open Event will be:
“The impact of Material, Ideological and Geopolitical power on International Organizations and self-funded and self-sustaining International Organizations”
The Open Event will be hosted by independent professors who will act as guardians of the impartiality of the event theme. The Open Event will bring discussions on issues ranging from current supranational structures and economical concerns to leadership challenges, universal access to education and sports, the role of arts in society and will end with an evening gala, a fundraiser event and much more.
