The event

Economia Viva is a cycle of conferences in which the most diverse topics of global interest are discussed. It is organized every year in a partnership between the Nova Economics Club (NEC) and the Nova Students’ Union (Nova SU), taking place at Nova School of Business and Economics.

Ever since its first edition, in 2016, Economia Viva has covered a vast range of topics and presented students and guests with a wide variety of opinions – aiming to achieve a truly open-minded debate.

Our mission

To make economic knowledge available to everyone, foment discussion and ultimately prepare future economists for their future responsibilities.

Our vision

We believe there is no right way to think about the economy. Different theories and ideas can co-exist and should be open to rational discussion.  We thrive for an economy that belongs to everyone and, as such, should work to increase the quality of life of society as a whole.

Our values

“For all issues, for all opinions, for all minds. Economics for all.”
This is the identity of Economia Viva: to discuss, without any filters, all topics of this science. A debate for every level of expertise and ages, always with the best speakers in the field.
