Feedback on the 8° Mont-Blanc Meetings

The 8th Mont Blanc Meetings (MBM) were held on 6, 7 and 8 December 2017 in Archamps (Genevois Français) on the theme “SSE: the new efficiency”, in partnership with local authorities. Grouping 350 committed men and women – leaders, entrepreneurs, star-upers, national and local elected representatives, institutional representatives, teachers and researchers – from 40 countries, the 8 ° RMB aimed to analyze the contribution of the SSE to sustainable and inclusive development and to think about how to increase its impact.

At the end of this creativity workshop based on brainstorming: 3 concrete and detailed solutions, dozens of complementary ideas and a good time of exchanges and meetings!
