What is OEES?

Get to know us!

The Open Eyes Economy is an intellectual and implementation movement that encourages us to a new, open-minded look at the economy, calls to action and inventing alternative – as compared to previously used – ways of understanding the economy which is based on values.

The International Congress of the Economy of Values, the ​​Open Eyes Economy Summit, is a melting pot of new ideas, a fusion of various horizons and a modern agora. It gathers and confronts the views of recognised politicians and social activists, scientists and students, journalists and artists. It is also a top opportunity to get to know the most important and the hottest trends in contemporary social and economic thought.


This year, the central theme of the Congress programme will be CREDIBILITY. We will talk about it and its impact on the economy, not only in terms of the state but also businesses and institutions. Apart from that, we will address the issue of human rights in business by taking a closer look at employees’ needs, as highlighted by the COVID-19, and how to build and enhance a positive employee experience in the work environment. Furthermore, we will continue to discuss the social and institutional dimensions of urban regeneration in the face of climate challenges and what youth- and senior-friendly cities should look like. Finally, we will also deal with the concepts of design-thinking and „co-creation” in creating public services and empathetic organisations. Of course, there will be the extremely important subject of our neighbours from across the eastern border. In the special track Open Eyes to Ukraine, together with Ukrainian authorities, we will discuss the challenges facing Ukraine and Central and Eastern Europe in restoring international order. We will consider how to effectively address current problems in the social, economic, and cultural dimensions.

The Open Eyes Economy Summit means meetings with inspiring people of business, science and politics, discussions about the new economic model, intellectual battles, inspirational sessions, direct confrontations of extremely different views and an opportunity to talk to the speakers in more intimate conditions as well.
We invite you to the discussion! We like listening and we want to talk; we want to inspire and be inspired. We want to create values ​​and we are open to those for whom they are also of utmost importance.

We look forward to seeing you at the next Open Eyes Economy Summit on 22-23 November 2022 in ICE Krakow and online!
