Habitat for Earth - How to Design and Build for a Regenerative Future

TKF22 and TKF23 are dedicated to exploring the future of the built environment.

About our Annual Forum

Our annual forum gathers 80 experts for 2.5 days in the Swiss Alps to tackle a specific environmental challenge in an intimate, safe, and unique environment.

Acknowledging the complexity of systemic change, TKF aims to bring together global stakeholders from all sectors, including leading business frontrunners, innovators, policy makers, NGOs, conservationists, investors and creative minds, to highlight the interdependence of the issues at stake and to encourage cross-pollination of information, ideas and projects.

Our workshops and discussions take place in a beautiful chalet on the Madrisa mountain. Due to the relatively small nature of the forum, the community develops a sense of kinship during workshops, dinners, and alpine activities creating an ideal environment to foster connections and effective relationships needed to find collaborative solutions for urgent environmental challenges.

TKF’s annual forum is by invitation only.

Meet our Partners

As a small impact-driven non-profit organisation, we highly value our partnerships with Laudes Foundation and Pictet group who support us on our mission.

We are truly grateful to be supported by these two honourable organisations.

“Laudes Foundation works with partners who are driving brave and bold action within industries that have an outsized impact on greenhouse gas emissions and social inclusion. The built environment generates almost 40% of annual global emissions. To reduce its impact significantly, stakeholders across the value chain need to collaborate at the intersection of climate and inequality. We are delighted to partner with The Klosters Forum to bring together industry leaders, investors, practitioners and visionaries from across the build environment, to help accelerate this transformation in a way that leaves nobody behind.”

Leslie Johnston Chief Executive Officer at Laudes Foundation

“Real estate asset owners have a key role to play. The property industry is the largest CO2 emitter. By making buildings more sustainable, we can help the environment by contributing to climate change mitigation and adaptation. At the same time, it is a way to add value to investments. Our partnership with The Klosters Forum aims to share knowledge by participating in open conversations and seeking solutions together on the future of the built environment.”
