The Bridge Summit 2016
Our first summit took place in conjunction with the inauguration of MAXIV, the most modern synchrotron source in the world.
We gathered 320 entrepreneurs, researchers, politicians, business leaders and students to discuss and innovate on our four themes: Clean water for everyone, Good health for everyone, Running out of raw materials, Sustainable energy everywhere
24 speakers shared their perspectives and insights. Among them Konstantin Novoselov (Nobel Prize Laureate), Michael Braungart (CEO and founder of EPEA, which was one, among others, actors behind cradle to cradle) and Åsa Skogström Feldt (The Hunger Project). The summit was lead by Tine Thygesen, rewarded serial entrepreneur and Mattias Goldmann, Managing Director at Fores.
Our 16 workshops and round-table discussions dug deep into some concrete challenges organisations are facing today. One of them, Peak Cotton together with The Swedish Fashion Council, brought us to Marrakesh and the UN conference COP 22.
