NEWS: The program for the building bridges WEEK is now online!



Are you a bridge builder?

Building Bridges Week will foster new conversations and collaborations that will accelerate the finance industry’s contribution to the achievement of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

By convening this exciting week under the theme Building Bridges, Switzerland intends to stimulate effective collaboration and tangible action between a range of actors including the finance industry, governments, business, the United Nations, academia and civil society.

Geneva, with its unique ecosystem, has a special role to play in building these bridges and accelerating the implementation of the 2030 Agenda through increased responsible investment.

Where finance and SDGs connect

The Week was conceived around the General Assembly of the Sustainable Financial Centres Network (FC4S), and features events from a range of actors active in the sustainable finance space.  The showcase of the week is the Building Bridges Summit taking place on Thursday 10 October, which will bring together 800 key representatives of Swiss and international public and private institutions active in sustainable finance. 

In view of our shared challenges and ambitions, we are delighted to count you among the participants of this week.

 Together, we can scale up our collective impact.
