Alpbach in Motion

Alpbach in Motion – The Alpbach Summit of Emerging Leaders (AIM) 2016 brings together 40 selected young European leaders from the areas of business, start-ups, small and medium- sized businesses, social businesses and the creative industries. During two intensive days in Alpbach, the group will tackle relevant questions regarding Europe’s economy. The goal is to gain new perspectives on economic and societal processes and to work on feasible ideas and implementable innovations that make a difference in their own organisations or environments.

Selected mentors will join the group for input and discussions. Mentors were, among others, Irish philosopher Charles Handy, Czech economist Tomáš Sedláček and Earth Institute Director Jeffrey Sachs. Facilitation is provided by freims: contemporary consulting.
