Rewarding Courage

The 43rd St. Gallen Symposium took place under the topic «Rewarding Courage». This topic makes a case against conformity, mediocrity and the culture of rotten compromises. Instead, it pleads for independent thinking, responsible civic behaviour, excellence in all human activities and a culture of consent that leaves room for strong opinions. But first and foremost, «Rewarding Courage» advocates a responsible way of thinking and acting against the current.
