Agile and courageous for the future

Thanks to the ‚solutions‘-makers’ boldness we finally experienced our first live performance after the Corona lockdown. They decided to start an hybrid-event which meant that Karel Golta’s cutting-edge lecture on the circular economy could actually take place on stage. With ‚Warum Ketchup die Welt nicht retten wird’ (‚Why Ketchup Won’t Save the World‘) he appealed impressively to all of us to be part of the decisive changes that are necessary to bring the world into harmony economically, socially and ecologically.

How sustainable innovation can change the world

While the Corona-pandamic overshadows a lot, this event was really encouraging: the Aware-conference was a flood of inspiring thoughts, ideas and insights about how sustainable innovation can change the way we think, live and act. And so did Karel’s keynote: ‚Material as a service‘ shows companies how to change their business models usefully without leaving it all behind. The target: becoming sustainable and circular.

House of Beautiful Business – October 2020 – online & Hamburg
House of Beautiful Business

Reinvent your business – from human-centric to humane

When the initiators of the House of Beautiful Business started to plan their annual event, nobody could have guessed how appropriate this title would become: But in contrast to the global anti-issue Corona ‘The Great Wave’ swept away thousands of people all around the world with enthusiasm and optimism.

And so did Karel: With his keynote he inspired the audience to imagine a new business and innovation culture, which no longer puts the humans in the center of the universe but cares for all life on earth: Recoding innovation from human-centric to ‘humane’.

All sessions can be rewatched – access to the whole content is online until the end of the year!

Prototyping brands for a new era

The ADCE European Creativity Festival launches this year with a one-of-a-kind format: The Festival of Festivals. A collective and interactive space, co-organised by and with the local member clubs.

Karels part was an appeal to the creatives: Creating cool products and services is no longer good enough, when the world ist on fire! He reminded that the chase for the next big and better thing is obsolete and that it should be the creative’s duty to keep an eye on the next generation and therefore on sustainability.
