AGENDA  -  2019


January 31st. from 7pm. to 9pm.

“Anthropocene & Age of Consumption”

The Anthropocene started as a proposed geological epoch but it has quickly developed into an existential planetary challenge beyond the preservation of our biosphere by representing disruption and convergence of planetary life support systems with the technological, economic, cultural and psychological limits of human existence.

"Anthropocene" or "Capitalocene"? How can the consumerist basis and perpetual growth requirement of present macro-economic system be addressed? Are there any alternative social innovations challenging this age of consumption?

"Resilience at Crossroads”

Workshop and networking event for those interested in learning and sharing views and ideas about sustainable innovation.

Sustainable innovation as power during societal and economic transition.

The data driven digital economy is only one dimension of this so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution, engineering, design, production, finance, etc, all industries are being transformed. Sectors will radically change and disappear, power and decision-making will be differently distributed. Organizations will run into existential questions. Uncertainty, conflict and resistance of dominant players will grow.

Can sustainable innovation replace profits as goal and purpose?

How can sustainable innovation be embedded at core of a business or a non-profit model?

How to influence and accelerate a sustainable transition?

Those and other questions will be explored.

Registration and tickets by email to amsterdam.global.forum@gmail.com mentioning your professional/educational background and topics of interest.
