How can you help speed up the transition?

During this two-day climate bootcamp, we focus on the climate crisis and what steps we can take as a company, NGO, city or individual to accelerate the transition. To this end, nine experts will take a closer look at the most important impact sectors: energy, food, mobility and buildings. And climate scientist Professor Wim Thiery provides an up-to-date overview of the climate problem.

Discover during this bootcamp : 

  • How the energy, food, buildings and mobility sectors are reaching their limits
  • How you, as a company or organization, can create value or be valuable from a meaningful goal while respecting the planetary boundaries
  • A transition is underway and what process is associated with it
  • And so much more!

Are you someone who brings about change? And do you want to take the most advanced knowledge needed for a transition with you as inspiration? Then this bootcamp is perfect for you!

This interactive two-day event is limited to 20 participants. So be quick!

Attention! Unlike the edition on May 26-27, this edition will be conducted in English.
