Programme

Keynotes, performances, experiences and workshops

On 21, 22 & 23 October 2019 we aim to make Brabant – if only briefly – the most beautiful place on earth, together with you and other creative thinkers and doers from Brabant (The Netherlands) and around the world.

The CWF team is working on a programme bursting with moments of positive confusion. We aim to take you on a rollercoaster ride of catchy inspirations, true challenges, breathtaking performances, high-end knowledge, creative interaction, good practices, dramatic failures and effective networking moments in a true Brabant atmosphere. Be prepared to be swept off your feet!

DAY 1 . 21 OCTOBER 2019

Making a change by planting a seed for a better world

CWF House (Parktheater, Theaterpad 1, Eindhoven)

Let’s take you on a wave of hope. Worldwide there are many societal challenges, but just as many geniuses who want to change the inevitable. During the CWF you will get the unique opportunity to meet them. Take Lilly Platt, a young Dutch climate striker and environmentalist. And Dennis Karpes, who will share his ambitions with us for a green Africa by 2030 and will show us his proven solutions through community programmes like Justdiggit. Let’s eat together with Food Designer Chloé Rutzerveld who will lead us through the future of foods in an eye-opening experience.

They all tackle challenges in a creative and innovative way and create unexpected solutions. Make their mistakes and show their vulnerability on stage. Not being 100% sure becomes an enormous quality. They want to change the inevitable. And they will change the inevitable. Open your hearts and minds, be positively confused by a dazzling opening session of the CWF2019.

DAY 2 . 22 OCTOBER 2019

CWF goes Local

Let us take you on a trip, where local meets global. In Brabant we look for ground-breaking solutions. We think outside existing frameworks. We put our cards on the table. We do business together in openness. And we want you to be part of it. Brabant immerses you into its Burgundian, hospitable and cosy character. Only in a few regions in the world fun and success are so inextricably linked.

On the second day of the CWF there will be 5 thematic sub-programmes to be held in 5 different cities in Brabant, where we will focus on specific cases and challenges:

The paradox of (un)limited Progress

HOSTED IN: Eindhoven

The paradox of (un)limited Inclusiveness

DAY 3 . 23 OCTOBER 2019

Thank you for reviving my dream

CWF House (Parktheater, Theaterpad 1, Eindhoven)

Let’s connect the world, be the helicopter and look at the world from your own perspective. We need a system change. The world is an ecology, a coherent whole. Some of us are specialists, some of us the analysts and others the economists and idealists, the creatives and the innovators. And we need each other’s skills and knowledge. So be inspired and work together with changemakers such as: Michael Green, who will take us on a journey about the SDGs as a tangible reality for social innovators all over the world; Godelieve Spaas, Professor of Sustainable Strategy & Innovation and Curator New Economy at Avans University of Applied Sciences and Knowledge; Lucas de Man, artist, actor and TV host and also the initiator of Company New Heroes. Lucas also presents his project of the  Biobased ‘Growing Pavilion’ on the Dutch Design Week sharing all his perspectives about the biobased future with us. And artist and philosopher Koert van Mensvoort, director of the Next Nature Network; a 21st century nature organisation that wants to move forward – not back – to nature.

During these days we will have made a piece of future. We can change the inevitable.
