The registration period for the fifth edition of the SABF opens today, and we would like to invite all students to participate in this experience, unique in South America. The event will take place on August 7th, 8th and 9th in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and is aimed at all undergraduate university students born in or after 1979, or students who graduated in 2008 or 2009. The main topic of the 2009 SABF, “New Paradigms , New Challenges“, pretends to analyze the many issues on a social, environmental and economic level which have arisen in the last few years, and are questioning the functioning and viability of our current global system. These different tendencies are altering the existing paradigms, and they will be the main topics of discussion during the forum.

During the three-day conference, students will be able to interact with peers from around the world, as well as with prominent leaders of the academic, business and political spheres, debating about several current issues related to our region. It is, furthermore, a unique experience in which the cultural exchange that is generated adds to the personal and professional development of the participants.

To apply, students must enter the Register section of our website. There, they must complete their personal information and load an essay of their authorship about one of the following three subtopics, which are related to the main theme: “Education & collaboration: a new approach to development”, “Environment and sustainability: from discussion to action” and “Opportunities in a changing economy”.

The applications are due on May 10th. After that date, an independent jury will select the 100 best presentations, and their authors will be invited to attend the event. If you have any doubts, please get in touch with us at:
