The I World Summit on Business Mediation has designed a program made up of conferences, workshops and tables of successful business experiences  in the search for solutions to different conflicts that arise in business activity in its relationship with the other agents and groups of interest that are part of the ecosystem business.

The contents of the Summit will address three significant issues whose transversal axis will be Alternative Dispute Resolution Mechanisms (MASC) and mediation for cooperative conflict management. In turn, they will connect with the sustainable development goals and will be included in the debate during the two days of this Summit.

  • The crisis of trust and its regeneration in the relationships of organizations and institutions
  • MASC and Mediation: instruments for the recovery of trust in social, labor and business relations
  • Processes for dialogue beyond mediation in multi-party conflicts (international and environmental conflicts)
