The ambition of 65th FIABCI World Congress is to propose an unforgettable event, a deep involvment in the search to offer the best program of conferences ever seen, gathered under the topic BUILDING HUMANITY The topic takes its roots from the history of Luxembourg as a symbol. Indeed and as a first landmark, the event logo represents the Red Bridge. The bridge was built in 1963, aiming to link Luxembourg’s historic city center to the new born Plateau de Kirchberg, which was to become one of the main financial platforms in the world but also, as a seat for numerous european institutions, the gateway to Europe. The second landmark that inspired us for the BUILDING HUMANITY topic is the fact that Luxembourg city architecture is marked all along by traces of former civilizations such as Celts and Romans. Another notable fact is that Plateau Kirchberg combines modern architecture style (such as Ming Pei Mudam) with former fortresses and other landmarks from the past (such as the Vauban Citadelle). BUILDING HUMANITY is also linked to the choice of our guest speakers, Jeremy Rifkin, one of the most renowned economists and thinkers of those days. more especially, his recent writing concerning the Third Industrial Revolution that will, thanks to the combination of new communication tools and renewable energies, lead to a financial disruption and a new societal system. This whole process starting with a deep real estate transformation, to build a new way of thinkin, working, doing business; a new humanity.
