2014 Concordia Summit to be Held September 29 in New York
The Leadership Council and Co-founders of Concordia are excited to announce that the fourth annual Concordia Summit will be held on September 29, 2014 in New York. The programming will be focused on Concordia’s 2014 theme, Scaling Proven Solutions Through Collaboration, promising to explore ways public, private, and nonprofit stakeholders can collaborate to expand the scale and impact of existing solutions for positive social change. Whether it is developing dynamic cities, enhancing our younger generation’s outlook, or addressing pressing infrastructure needs, Scaling Proven Solutions Through Collaboration will encourage individuals, organizations, and different levels of government to unite to leverage their abilities for a better future.
The event will take place in New York City on September 29th. Building off the success of three previous summits, the 2014 Summit will convene to discuss the role of public-private partnerships and their potential to create sustainable solutions.
Over the years, The Concordia Summit has brought together over 20 heads of state as well as hundreds of business, nonprofit, and government leaders. Partnerships form to effect positive social impact, transforming a reactionary global approach to one that is proactive.
"Each Concordia Summit has been better than the last and we plan to continue the trend into 2014,” said Concordia Co-founder and Chairman Matthew A. Swift. “We have momentum with our partners in the public and private sectors that we will sustain and build to best tackle pressing global problems.”
"Developing lasting solutions through public-private partnerships is Concordia’s purpose and my personal mission,” said Concordia Co-founder and Chairman Nicholas Logothetis. "We have more in store for 2014 and look forward to further developing our research platform and our series of convenings.”
Concordia is a young non-partisan and nonprofit organization that promotes effective and sustainable public-private partnerships (P3s) by convening global leaders and developing new methods of research and intelligence. Concordia also identifies new avenues of collaboration for governments, businesses, and nonprofits to create a more prosperous and secure future.
