La Toja - Vínculo Atlántico Forum was born five years ago in Galicia (Spain) as a civil society initiative to promote reflection and public conversation on the global challenges of our time. The Atlantic link that we defend is geographical and cultural, but also of common values, which are materialized in a representative democracy, a free market social economy and a liberal international order.

In accordance with these premises, political leaders such as Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, António Costa, Pedro Sánchez, Mariano Rajoy, Enrico Letta, Mauricio Macri or Felipe González, as well as intellectuals of the stature of Steven Pinker, Timothy Garton Ash or Ivan Krastev, and many other personalities from the business and academic world, have already participated in our debates. Now, this meeting reinforces its Atlantic vocation by organizing its second edition in Lisbon under the same premises of excellence and plurality.
