The Estoril Institute for Global Dialogue (Estoril Global) is a Not for Profit Organization whose mission is to promote the development of local initiatives that address the challenges of globalization. The emphasis is put on dialogue as a process of shared understanding and co-creation between private and public stakeholders. With this mission we operate at two levels: knowledge and impact. Knowledge through a global forum, the Estoril Conferences, where leaders, academics and local agents discuss the challenges of globalization, while at the same time inspiring the audience to think and develop initiatives that may solve those same challenges. And impact, through the active support and promotion of local projects that emerge from the Estoril Conferences.
