WHAT IS B'FUTURE SUMMIT

Since our inception, in 2013, Emerging Europe’s mission has been to foster socioeconomic, democratic and sustainable growth in the region — in an inclusive, independent, knowledgeable, progressive and passionate way. 

 

In 2015, the international community, through the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda, identified five critical dimensions to reach genuine sustainability: People, Planet, Prosperity, Partnership and Peace.

 

We believe these are essential areas to reach our vision for the emerging Europe region — and we look at innovation and technology as the key drivers of this growth, strongly impacting each of the areas.

 

Technology and innovation foster talent, bringing the best out of people. They fast-track our journey to a sustainable planet. They bring prosperity through high-added-value solutions and well-paid work.  

 

Moreover, innovation and technology thrive through partnership and contribute to peace by enabling more accountability and transparency.

HOW WILL WE MAKE AN IMPACT

The B’Future Summit will bring the world together to take the challenges the emerging Europe region faces and turn them into opportunities and concrete actions. 

 

A sustainable future for emerging Europe can only exist when co-creation, collaboration, cross-sector partnership and contribution are at its heart. This is why we aim to stimulate transformational change and open new ways of creating the region’s future.

 

The B’Future Summit 2020 will achieve this by creating connections between the world’s and emerging Europe’s top sustainability, innovation and tech experts, successful businesses, governments, institutions and the media. We will get together to share expertise, insight and create partnerships.

 

Join the B’Future Summit — and be part of shaping emerging Europe into the world’s most thriving and sustainable region.
