    Responsible Leaders Forum

    Responsible Leaders Forum South Africa

    At this gathering, we intend to listen to diverse voices on the challenges and innovations arising in Africa and beyond. A continent of vastly diverse cultures and countries, Africa is currently undergoing deep transformations as a result of widespread progress in health, education, entrepreneurship, and civil society. In Africa, as around the world, this progress depends on leaders that are willing to assume responsibility for society.

    Bits & Pretzels Conference

    Impact Salons

    On the sidelines of this year’s Bits & Pretzels founder’s festival, we will host Impact Salons on September 29 at our office on Prater Island.

    As this year’s event features inspirational speakers who are working towards positive change, we see many opportunities to create synergies, bring in new perspectives of purpose-driven entrepreneurship, and connect with 5,000 international founders, investors, and decision-makers from the startup ecosystem.

    As a global leadership organization that is committed to inspire, connect, and engage leaders, we are delighted that President Barack Obama will be in Munich to open Bits & Pretzels on September 29 in a moderated conversation followed by our impact salons in the afternoon.

    Zukunftsbrücke: Chinese-German Young Professional Campus

    Achieving the 2030 Agenda – Rethinking Global Partnerships for Sustainable Development

    The United Nations 2030 agenda is based on two basic beliefs: One, that global challenges can only be solved together; and two, that climate policy, poverty reduction and sustainable development are inextricably linked. With this year’s Zukunftsbrücke, we will examine how the SDGs in Germany and China are understood, and which new paths and partnerships will allow us to advance towards their fulfilment. Under discussion will be the roles of nation-states and new cross-sector partnerships from politics, academia and civil society, and ultimately the responsibility of individuals and leaders to work towards a fair, sustainable society.
