8:30 AM to 9:45 AM
Guest Speaker: Ruud VELTENAAR

We live in an exciting and revolutionary era. Our familiar
world is changing rapidly and radically, and we are at a major tipping point in our history. Together we must address hefty, interconnected problems and challenges. Businesses, governments and civil society organizations are busy making sense of these problems, finding vital solutions and taking action.

But how can the efforts of people and organizations    contribute to a more sustainable environment and fair, inclusive society? How do we attract public attention for more impact and especially more progress? Real progress?  How do we mobilize people and organizations to transform awareness and desire into connection and implementation? And then what are the vital ideas and solutions for tomorrow’s world?
