The green revolution is considered to be as transformational as the industrial revolution. With the difference that we do not have a century but a couple of decades to transform the way we live, work and run businesses. Every organization has to rethink and redesign its processes and business models and adjust them to the sustainable economy of the 21st century. While it may pose a challenge to some, it definitely offers an opportunity to innovators. The wider Basel Region has reinvented itself in the past. It has all the needed ingredients to do so again and successfully build an ecosystem that drives this change.

Basel Area Business & Innovation, FHNW School of Life Sciences and Impact Hub Basel have joined forces to support entrepreneurs, companies, researchers and other innovators in the region to find inspiration, networks and solutions that address the challenge. Whether you are a startup that is on a mission to develop a solution for future markets, or if you are an established organization that needs to adapt to the new circumstances, this event and networking opportunity is designed for you.

At the event we will learn about Doughnut Economics and how it can be applied to businesses from Erinch Sahan from the Doughnut Economics Action Lab in Oxford. From the Solar Impulse Foundation we will learn how cities/regions can develop into clusters that drive sustainable innovation and change. Finally we get an introduction to methods and tools that allow companies to get started on their sustainability journey from B Lab Switzerland.

The Event is part of our networking series and is powered by Innosuisse.
