The world around us is becoming increasingly complex. Major social issues are crying out for new solutions. Solutions that used to meet requirements no longer reflect today's reality. They require a different way of thinking and, above all, a different way of doing things. More than ever before, there is a need for creativity, innovation and imagination.
Participants in CWF2019 will experience this first hand from 21 to 23 October, via stimulating encounters, thought-provoking work sessions, and inspiring speakers. Take young climate striker Lilly Platt, who, at age 11, is one of the 100 most influential advisers on plastic contamination. Then there is Dennis Karpes, founder of Dance4Life, who, with his foundation Justdiggit, is fighting against desertification and for a Green Africa in 2030. Education pioneer John Hardy, food futurist Chloé Rutzerveld, creator Lucas de Man, ‘philantro-capitalist’ Michael Green and many more inspiring speakers will be demonstrating how they use creativity to make the world a better place.
As participant in CWF2019, you will also get to work yourself. On day two, we will travel to Brabant, where we'll be challenged to use our creativity and work together on concrete cases from the Netherlands and abroad in the areas of mobility, resources, inclusiveness, food and progress. You can find the complete programme here.
We expect a total of some 2,000 national and international participants from the business community, government, education, social organisations and, of course, the creative sector. CWF2019 will mainly be taking place in Eindhoven at the same time as Dutch Design Week.
