Thank you for taking part in our Hybrid Experience

See you next year, March 14-16 2023

Last week, our 16th consecutive Forum – and our first Hybrid Event – left us exhilarated by the many simply fantastic projects, presentations, case-studies, discussions, panels, feed-back rounds, hangouts, break out rooms, speeches, one-to-one meetings, glowing screens, zoom- and exchange across the Globe!After some time apart it felt really special to be able to welcome all participants who came to Malmö in person, and at the same time be able to connect with those who participated online.
