The ERSTE Foundation Tipping Point Talks 2019

18. October 2019
Magazine > Activities > Audacity

As we celebrate 200 years of the savings bank model in Austria, we understand that providing savings accounts to citizens in the fast-changing 19th century was as audacious as it proved sustainable. ERSTE Foundation started as a social business. The savings bank was inclusive in scope and conservative in risk. It turned into a pillar of the European model of empowerment and wellbeing of the many.

How can we realise a holistic concept of prosperity for all today? What will be private and what will be public goods, services, institutions but also responsibilities? How can we lead the profound transformations ahead of us – on climate, technology and on living together – and get those transformations right? Who will forge new alliances of responsibility? Audacity of initiative is what we now need.
