New ways of life in 2050 – Presentation at the ESSEC Business School iMagination Week

For its 10th edition, Remi Cesaro was invited at Imagination Week by the ESSEC Business School to share his insights on what the world will look like in 2050. Remi led a one-hour presentation on two major issues, for which we will witness the consequences unfolding: climate change and the depletion of resources. He highlighted their origins, potential consequences, and its significant impact to our lives now up until the foreseeable future. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session.

ESSEC Business School is a world leading education school. They have four campuses around the world – in France, Singapore, and Morocco and they offer a wide range of courses, which include Grande Ecole & Masters, MBA, PHD, etc.

The annual iMagination Week is a 5-day seminar in which students of the Grande Ecole / Master in Management program use their imagination and creativity to think about the future through a series of conferences and team projects; and become responsible innovators.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this 10th edition of the iMagination Week was the first-ever HYBRID launch – happening LIVE [on-campus] and Virtually [online]. The students, tutors, and speakers came together from over 4 continents.
