Trust and Integrity in the Global Economy: towards economic justice and environmental sustainability
Announcing the TIGE 2013 conference, 13 to 19 July, in Caux, Switzerland
In 2013, the focus will be on the core values needed to underpin human dignity and work towards a sustainable world, including practical solutions for action at both corporate and grassroots levels.
The ‘Trust and Integrity in the Global Economy’ (TIGE) conferences, engage business people and decision-influencers in ‘honest conversations’ on the issues of globalization and the human face of economics. TIGE further aims to equip people with practical tools, grounded in a moral and ethical framework, for use in their places of work. TIGE’s mission is to ‘strengthen the motivations of care and moral commitment in economic life and thinking, in order to create jobs, correct economic and environmental imbalances and tackle the root causes of poverty.’
