Our

network activities









Networks

are great opportunities to build new knowledge,

exchange ideas

and move things forward by joining forces.

Our networks connect

us locally and around the world with creative minds, impulse givers, discussion partners, problem solvers and gamechangers.

They are spaces that bring forth

future and agency

and help us sharpen and develop our self-understanding as sustainability entrepreneurs.

We meet people there who believe, just like we do, that this world can become much better than it currently is. We present them on this page in loose order and thank everyone involved for the

inspiring and motivating cooperation
