Our concept
in a nutshell

Why Geneva Macro Labs?

We leverage Lake Geneva's intellectual potential and unique institutional capital to help achieve the SDGs. We want to drive positive change and collective action. 

Geneva is the ideal base for a collective intelligence network and platform for co-creating innovative solutions. We aim to help develop actionable solutions for global issues.

Increasing cooperation is vital to supporting each of the Sustainable Development Goals. 

We focus on Goal 17, developing multi-stakeholder partnerships to share knowledge and expertise. That way we help contribute to the overall success of the SDGs. 

What are the Geneva Macro Labs?

The GeMLabs are a Do Tank that contributes to Geneva "walking the talk" when it comes to delivering the SDGs.

We want to empower our community in order to advise and advocate for effective policymaking. 

As civil society entity, we benefit from a unique position, bringing together stakeholders from different sectors, generating and analyzing reliable data from the grassroots and promoting evidence-based policy-making to engage stakeholders for the solutions we identify.

What are our activities?

We organize conferences and hold monthly after work events to foster dialogue and provide networking opportunities.

Our conferences are interactive and include workshops where the audience contributes to the discussion and works on solutions.

The conclusions of our roundtable events and conferences are published in Solutions Papers.

Our mission is to scale that knowledge for a sustainable future and to advocate evidence-based decision-making. 

How do we work?

The GeMLabs are a member based forum and platform. We bring together people from all walks of life who have the will and the influence to create a sustainable future in line with SDGs.


We work with a scientific and advisory board as well as with external audit and experts to ensure independence, transparency and due diligence.
