The Geneva Trialogue took place on 16 March and was held at the CERN Globe for Science and Innovation and at CERN IdeaSquare.

In its 5th edition, the 2023 Geneva Trialogue builds on a track record of promoting Open Innovation for Education. The organisers remain focussed on their goal of accelerating action-oriented discussion between International Organizations, academia and the private sector, towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Geneva Trialogue is by invitation only.

The 2023 edition at CERN is based on an innovative hands-on format pioneered in 2022, with a set of parallel roundtables. Each table has 7-10 persons and is led by an organisation with a specific education challenge. The output of the discussions at each table is a set of well-defined challenges suitable for prototyping in a follow-up hackathon. Some of those hackathons will take place during the Crowd4SDG event on 17 March, also at CERN.

Examples this year included roundtables on:

  • Education in a ChatGTP world
  • Reinventing curricula for Africa in the SDG era
  • Building Open Innovation Commons for International Geneva
  • Creating Innovative and Sustainable Water Monitoring Around the World

The Geneva Trialogue is the kick-off event of the Open Geneva Festival, a series of hackathons and innovation events taking place all across Geneva from 16-26 March 2023.
