In 2023, the beautiful Swiss city of Geneva will host the 13th World Chambers Congress 2023. It lies at the southern tip of expansive Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) and is surrounded by the Alps and Jura mountains. On a clear day you can even see great views of the Alp’s tallest mountain, Mont Blanc.
Home to the European headquarters of the United Nations, and to institutions such as the World Health Organisation or of the International Committee of the Red Cross, among others, Geneva is known worldwide as being a global hub for diplomacy. The synergies that exist between the different actors, whether private or public, bring together people, ideas and know-how. They help create important stakeholder networks in various fields such as global health, SDGs, access to water or international trade policymaking. All in all, the perfect place for a global conference and for an enjoyable visit among the mountains and the lake.
