Why Helsinki? – Finland is consistently ranked in the top 5 best countries for women and has been ranked the happiest nation on earth for five consecutive years. It’s a pacesetter in technology. It is a leader in design and sustainability and is a strategically important nation in the shifting geopolitical landscape of Europe. What will you learn to help your decision-making as a leader?


First – the European security paradigm is disrupted. How are a belligerent Russia and a rising China shifting the military and geopolitical landscape in Europe? What may the future hold?


Second – technology continues to move at warp speed. What is quantum computing? How might it be used to meet challenges in medicine, energy, climate, and beyond?


Third – how you can spread happiness. We’ll discuss what happiness is, what fosters feelings of well-being, and whether we can change how we think to have a more optimistic outlook.

Join IWF members from around the world in Helsinki for expert insights, exclusive information, candor, and, most of all, respect for a diversity of views and beliefs.
