At the present time, the world is facing immense challenges. To create a better tomorrow, we need to reconnect to nature, to humanity and to ourselves. The Love Tomorrow Conference is all about restoring connections and onboarding the People of Tomorrow to this adventure.
The challenges we face can be divided into four tracks. They are not separate frameworks, but fully interconnected challenges that affect us all. Their solutions, too, need to be interconnected.
Imagine that what is good for us all, is also good for society and the planet as well. Let’s explore these four tracks and how they are connected to each other and to ourselves!
The icing on the cake will be the contribution of the renowned futurist writer Yuval Noah Harari. He will reflect on sustainability as a whole, across the four tracks, in his own, engaging style.
In this track we zoom in on the daily lives of us as individuals. What we eat, how we live and where we house ourselves defines our own health and the health of our planet. Speakers such as Ali Tabrizi (director of ‘Seaspiracy’), synthetic biologist Dr. Ir. Nadine Bongaerts, Lieven Vanlommel (CEO Foodmaker), Jasna Rokegem (fashion-tech designer and CEO of Jasna Rok) and Lucas De Man (designer and CEO of Biobased Creations) will address such topics as changing food patterns, quality of life, (mental) health, etc.
We are beyond a state of concern when talking about the climate. Our future will be defined by our ability to unite, collaborate and increase climate balance and biodiversity, today. Host Dennis Karpes (social entrepreneur) will introduce Barbara Belvisi (CEO of Interstellar Lab) and technological innovator Dirk Standaert and talk about environmental topics, nature conservation and regeneration.
3. Let’s talk about tech
The economic model that is all about bigger and faster, as the Western world knows it today, might need to flip to a new model, with a bigger focus on effectiveness, durability and balance. Arash Aazami (Inventor & social entrepreneur), Jacob Bossaer (co-founder of BOSAQ), DJ Ida Engberg and host Cécile van Oppen (Co-founder Copper8) will discuss the circular economy, energy, tech, new business models, and more.
Tackling the challenges of the 21st century won’t happen with technology alone. We will need our whole humanity, including our human cross-connections, integral thinking and empathy. David Sirota (Writer, Don’t Look Up), Frans Timmermans (Executive Vice-President for the European Green Deal) and host Liviu Babitz (innovator and inventor), have plenty to say about themes such as transformation, the arts, (r)evolution, human rights, etc.
