Join the World Forum




Come seek inspiration to reinvent your role and that of the company

Our aim is to present solutions rather than identify problems. From the CEO of a large industrial group to the innovative entrepreneur, our speakers will demonstrate, by way of example, the successes of their personal investment in favor of a responsible economy.

Save time and learn tools to speed progress

With over 100 sessions offered per event, you'll discover new working methods, innovative processes to apply inside your company and short- and long-term practices to help change the way you do business.

Think global...

You'll have the possibility to meet with experts, thanks to the groundwork laid by some 30 correspondents located across the world. This outreach has brought nearly 1,000 speakers from 85 countries to share their experience, a diversity making for very enriching exchanges year in year out

Act local!

Given our various session formats, you'll have plenty of opportunity to discuss with participants representing your specific territory, providing you with the resources to tap into a network assembled within a community of responsible actors.

Take advantage of 20 years of expertise in the field!

The World Forum was launched in 2007 upon the initiative of the Alliances Network (Réseau Alliances) and its President, Philippe Vasseur, former journalist and French Minister. For over 20 years, we've been organizing companies in the Nord-Pas de Calais Region committed to supporting CSR strategies, in the aim of helping them optimize performance. This daily and neighborly form of assistance has offered us tremendous insight into corporate expectations.



Since 2007, nearly 1,000 speakers have taken the stage
