Brazil’s economic and social future will be built on the foundations of human capital. A strong foundation is a must if Brazil is to achieve higher economic growth and reduced inequality.

The dimensions of human capital are synergistic and developed over a lifetime, with critical building blocks formed from early childhood. Join us for a discussion with Flavio Cunha and Saulo Barreto who are at the forefront of developing social technologies based on theoretical and empirical understandings of human capital development. Specifically, they will discuss what is known about the impact that institutions, education, and societal bonds have on individuals during early childhood and adolescence, and how they influence human capital over a lifetime.

Following the discussion the Research Institute for Technology and Education (IPTI) will hold an exhibition detailing several of the Social Technologies they have developed, and their potential for application throughout Brazil and other countries. Three of the projects to be discussed will feature the role of AmBev/ABI and its support in developing new technologies.
