Challenge:Future Summit 2012

by C:F Team on 12th January, 2012 at 9:12 PM CEST

All that we do, echoes in eternity. All the steps we make, all the things we share, all the roles we have, it all makes sense when it leads to a certain aim, certain inauguration. What is the C:F Summit 2012 if not an inauguration of our creative, innovative minds, and a window to new horizons? 

Yes, the C:F Summit is a unique event connecting the most innovative youth, pioneering businesses, educators, policy leaders and other change makers in dialogue, reflection and action. 

An important and exciting part of C:F Summit will be the Main Competition Grand Finals where Grand Award Contenders will present their ideas and solutions in front of Prominent Jugdes and compete to be winners of EUR 20,000.

Do check C:F Summit 2010 page to get a glimpse of the past! As Sayanee shares her experience and thoughts: “When a C:F Family gathers, it gathers a miniature globe.” It really is so!


What are the axes which will turn the globe during C:F Summit 2012?

1. C:F Academy (16 - 20 March 2012, Bled, Slovenia)

Topic: Leadership for Smart, Sustainable and Inclusive Growth

2. C:F Youth Forum (18 March 2012, Bled, Slovenia)

Roundtable and attending special TEDx Event in Bled bringing ideas worth spreading from various corners of the world (yes, from the C:F World, too!)

3. C:F Educators Forum (19-21 March 2012, IEDC Bled, Slovenia)

Topic: Education for Smart, Sustainable and Inclusive Future

4. C:F Business Forum (20 March 2012, Bled, Slovenia)

Topic: 2020 - Risk or Opportunity: Next challenges for next champions

5. C:F Gala Ceremony (21 March 2012, Ljubljana, Slovenia)

Topic: Towards Smart, Sustainable and Inclusive Future

These five pillars will be the basis for developing a rich inspiring program that will give strong impact for students, professors and business experts. World known speakers will shed light to the C:F World by giving lectures and speeches, and for now (to keep your curiosity) we will announce only two of them :) 

1. Lecture and Workshop with Joel Barker, one of the best-known futurists in the world, member of C:F Advisory Board and participant at C:F Summit 2010.

He is already well known to the C:F community not only as one of the inspiring spekers of last year Summit but also for his book “Five regions of the Future”,.

For C:F Summit 2012, we will hear him sharing about the topic "Paradigm Shifts in the 21st Century: what you need to know."

2. Lecture by Deepa Prahalad , world known author, business strategist and consultant who will talk about Innovation and The bottom of the Pyramid.

She is also a member of C:F advisory board and has strong expert knowledge in opportunities at the intersection of consumer experience, technology and strategy.


So, are you ready for a true life-changing event?

We are looking forward to meeting you!
