2023 Agenda : "No collaboration without communication"
We put a focus on collaboratively finding solutions for the most pressing issues of our time with clear focus, integrity and open communication.

Founder, Rudi Hilti. 

THE WHO: We are a symbiotic community of pioneers - we come together and pose new questions for which we do not necessarily have the answers to, just yet.

Transformer, Vilas Dhar.

THE WHY: We believe that current global systems need to be re-imagined all together. The act of questioning creates the possibility to explore and brings us further towards our goal.

WSF 2020, Flums.

THE HOW : Constant shifts lead to stability. create discussions and experiences that equip people to answer and respond to the question of "How can we continue to shift, learn, innovate and adapt to creating a stable present future for ourselves?"

Led by Dromos, we host a dialogue around how Mobility needs to shift environmentally and socially to overcome current global imbalances. How can we achieve a radical and fundamental change in mobility, to bring humans into centre stage, again.

Roundtable(s) 1, focusing on Education, led by minds at HSG, discuss the role of education in global development.

 With practice and belief in nurturing individuality, HSG explore the shift from mass-producing leaders for the status-quo to the curation of learning communities grounded on peer-to-peer learning, empowerment, and self-reflection.  

Roundtable 2, led by VDE Renewables, is focused on Energy and Storage. With a key focus of awareness into the the current market situation, the state of technological progress and existing challenges and barriers, we witness a panel of experts ideate on the potentials for the future.

Art and Music contribute to System Change in the most profound way. Our Art & Music Experience presents a unique way of experiencing human communication and interaction. With a focus to nurture new creation and creativity for the benefit for all, we focus on the result of inspiring change.

The ability for culture to free us from restrictive thought patterns can be a powerful tool in System Change.

The sports experience focuses on the role of sport as a “bridge builder” for systemic change.

The discussion will explore how sports can be used as a tool to promote social cohesion, inclusivity, and cross-cultural understanding.

Additionally, the panel will examine the role of international sporting organizations in fostering positive change through sport.

To change, first a change of mindset is required. To unlearn what we have learned, we need to establish different neuronal connections and practice them. Things only become tangible, as we give them sense.

At the example of Vlinder, a carbon investment company, the “Mindset Change” experience examines how we can attract capital in order to grow carbon offsetting mangrove trees. Even though Vlinder supports local communities with 50%+ of the carbon credits, the company can create a strong investment case. Carbon will be one of our future means of payment, carbon is the new gold.   

Mission Earth First leads an experience and dialogue about discovering what kind of systems changes is needed if we are to change towards self-sustaining communities on earth, to prepare for future communities on the Moon or Mars.

They dive into how education can contribute to these changes that might take several generations and what is needed to achieve this?

Lunch is served up by Collectively, an innovative, first-to-market platform driving sustainable food & beverages products for the good of the planet, the forum attendees gain insight into industry bending protein alternatives that reduce animal protein consumption in their daily routine. Where science and innovation are in a love match with food, conscious consumption aligns with the values of the forum.

The Spirit of 'Davuz'
Each January, we set the tone for the year with a program series that begins in Vaduz, travels to Flums and ends up in Davos. 'Davuz' brings fresh perspectives into traditional settings and is the spirit that inspires bravery in tackling system change. Our 'Davuz' Program will be hosted during the WEF on January 16th and 17th in Davos.
