The current confluence of three major global crises—health, economic, and climate—defines an unprecedented era in which a new society is emerging characterized by the coexistence of often contradictory trends. Trading strategies and decision making are often torn between these contradictions, in which there are no right or wrong options. The most important thing is to analyse in depth the opposites to find useful answers based on objectives and needs.

In these six sessions we will delve into these contradictions through the vision of a prominent speaker. In each session, the speaker will present their views on the subject, and then will participate in a debate with an opponent who will criticize the opinions expressed.
