Concordia, a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that builds partnerships for social impact, will welcome former Vice President of the United States, recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and leader of the new Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania, Joe Biden, to address the inaugural Concordia Europe Summit in Athens, Greece on June 6-7, 2017. The Summit will also feature addresses from Greek Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras, and Non-Executive Chairman of Goldman Sachs International and former President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso.
As its first major European event, the Concordia Europe Summit is an important convening of over 400 leaders from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors that will provide attendees with an opportunity to participate in meaningful discussions on how public-private partnerships can address pressing issues facing the continent and beyond, including the mounting refugee crisis, the future of the European Union, and regional investment in achieving the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Concordia Co-Founders, Nicholas Logothetis and Matthew Swift commented, "Building meaningful partnerships at the intersection of business and government in and around Europe is key to ensuring that the global community at large remains on a steady path to achieving the SDGs, sustainable solutions for refugees, and opportunities for investment. We are honored that former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, and former European Commission President José Manuel Barroso will lend their leadership as we come together to identify solutions for a more prosperous Europe."
