We decided to dedicate the next Zermatt Summit to humanising capital to stimulate innovation.
Human beings only change when there is a crisis or when there are personal interests involved, so it is time we as a society look at how we succeed to transform our same society.
Our very lifestyle is likely to undermine the chances that future generations will be able to lead worthwhile lives and have their primary needs met. The economic production model that we currently have does not work. What is required of us, however, is to make a mental leap as well as a behavioral change, to disrupt our thinking about production so as to enter a circular, regenerative, environmentalist dynamic. It is morally necessary for us as individuals and for business to take care of our planet and it’s people.
In this year’s edition the Zermatt Summit wants to show possible paths that we can take towards regenerative growth by describing trends and scenarios that are difficult to interpret, making them visible, understandable, accessible and promising. The focus will be to put back the human person at the center of innovation in technology, food and energy. An economic revolution inspired by nature is under- way. There is no more powerful force to drive innovation and change than human enterprise.
The Zermatt Summit is a unique opportunity to meet and spend time with likeminded people from all over the world, each and everyone with a special story to tell. The attendees, ranging from businessmen, policymakers, to entrepreneurs and environmental economists, will share with you innova- tive ways of thought, progressive and inspiring stories, as well as experiences that show that the time to act can be and is now.
All projects proposed and explained give you in- sights in techniques that are practical, applicable, usable and implementable from day one. Taking place in the exclusive mountain village of Zermatt, surrounded by nature, nested deep into the Swiss Alps. There are moments planned to stretch your legs, go outside to focus on the future full of possibilities and forget day to day stress.
The intersection of technology and new media has redefined our understanding of human progress. In the midst of this rapidly changing world, the Social Good Summit focuses on where we’re headed. Held annually during the United Nations General Assembly week, the Summit unites a lively community of global citizens and progressive thought leaders around a common theme: #2030NOW. A dynamic exploration of the world we want to live in by 2030, the Social Good Summit will focus on how we can unlock technology’s potential to make the world a better place.
