Fifth edition of the Freedom Forum


On May 23, the fifth session of the UCEMA Freedom Forum will be held. The UCEMA Freedom Forum is a virtual space designed for rotating groups of intellectuals to debate diverse and transcendental issues, escaping from the classic debate around the current situation which prevents long-term thinking. The meeting will be held under the title "Responsabilidad Social Empresaria" (Corporate Social Responsibility).

As always, the forum will be coordinated by the committee formed by Alberto Benegas Lynch (h), Julio Elías, Martín Krause and Edgardo Zablotsky, who will also participate in the sessions. The moderator will be Dr. Zablotsky, in his capacity as President of UCEMA. As for the guests, this session of the Forum will include the participation of Enrique Ghersi, Bertie Benegas Lynch, Wenceslao Giménez Bonet, Luisa Montuschi, and Andrés Bellido.
