Individual Transformation | Keynote
Karin Huber (Futurability)

We as individuals have much more impactpower than we think. Not only in our daily activities in and around the house or weekly at the gas station, but mostly on the other side of the world, by producing and transporting the things we buy and use daily. We as consumers ultimately pay for means that impact society and keeps the system in place. What can we as individuals do in order to become more aware of our ‘hidden impact’?

Business Transformation | Keynote
Harald Friedl (Circle Economy)

Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in today’s corporate world and can contribute to the current and future success of organizations. Integrating ecological, social, and economic objectives into corporate decisions is a key success factor for transformation towards sustainability. As sustainability is not achieved by single actions, but rather as an ongoing process, decision-makers must have means to analyze the current state of an organization. How can companies structure their field of action for the transformation towards sustainability?

Society Transformation | Panel Discussion
Barbara Inmann (Impact Hub), Markus Raunig (Austrian Startups), Theresa Imre (Markta)

Fulfilling the SDGs for sustainable transformations will take an unprecedented effort by all sectors in society — in which business has to play a very important role in the process. What does Sustainable Transformation mean on a society level? Considering Austria’s ecological, social, and economic scenario, how is sustainable transformation in Austria already stimulated and where can society/government still contribute to reinforce sustainable transformation?
