The Global Opportunity Panel in San Francisco on May 29th 2015 gathered 25 innovative and creative people for a fast-paced 4-hour workshop.
The starting point for the discussion was five specific global risks:
These risk represent a pressure on societies to start wide ranging changes in many areas from the way we transport ourselves to the diets we eat. The panel provided insights and inspiration on how we can design these changes wisely creating opportunities for long term benefits for society and business both.
The material produced at the workshop is part of the basis of the Global Opportunity Report 2016.
The panel took place May 29, 2015, from 9.00 am – 1.00 pm at Hotel Marriott Marquis. (Google map)
The participants are selected on the basis of their background, their work with sustainability, and other relevant areas. They are mixed across the public, private, and non-governmental sector, as this is the way we believe we create synergy and sustainable solutions.
