We are in this together.


In times of rapid change, dystopia and populism we need to focus on what needs to be done to create a future we all want to live in.

We have to unite to shape what’s going to be next – in society, politics, technology, arts, culture, for our planet and environment.

Join us for a three-day-festival in Munich fully packed with visionary thoughts, business insights and networking – and more than 100 speakers from all over the world!
