We want to invite you to the most creative congress in Poland, where we create space to seek solutions that will make safer and more stable future for society. We are analysts of reality and creators of tomorrow’s ideas, which we put into practice today. 

OEES is a unique economic congress where we prove that business and the economy not only can but should be based on social values. We demonstrate the real benefits to people and the environment that result from embracing sustainability and change, listening to societal needs, and innovating. We do it every year in the ICE Congress Centre in Krakow with the help of inspiring people from the world of science, economy, culture or public administration. 


The OEES 7 will take place on 22-23 November 2022 at the ICE Congress Center in Krakow and online on a dedicated streaming platform.

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.

When defining OEES, one cannot only talk about the November meeting at ICE. It is the culmination of a whole year of intellectual and organisational work. Between OEES editions, we organise meetings, lectures and discussions, to which you are warmly invited.
