This year's Forward Thinking
With the Forward Thinking conference, we want to inspire more companies to embark on a strategic journey, alone and with others. Design helps set the direction in a holistic perspective leading to better products, services, systems and business models. We are moving towards a circular future and this day will take you on a sustainability round trip.
There are many companies today delivering on the challenges of the future. However, there is still a need for more knowledge and increased collaboration to come one important step further. We will help you stock up with inspiration and tools for an important journey.
No one will protect what they don´t care about. And no one will care about what they never have experienced.
Welcome to Forward Thinking: Sustainability – a round trip, a unique seminar specifically aimed at the sports and outdoor industry, adventure tourism, business in general, eco-organizations and designers.
DOGA will contribute to a sustainable society through future-oriented design, architecture and urban development, and we will be a key contributor to the necessary green change. We are an arena for inspiration, dialogue and debate.
