PLASTIC POLLUTION 2018–2020

The over-abundance of plastic in our ecosystem is an economic, environmental, human health and aesthetic catastrophe, posing a multi-dimensional challenge to humanity, often compared to climate change in terms of impact, breadth and complexity.

A challenge of this magnitude requires cross sector collaborations, knowledge sharing and support.  At The Klosters Forum, this is what we do.

 

Approach

The Klosters Forum is a neutral platform that brings together disruptive and inspirational minds to tackle some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. We convene and connect relevant, impactful and committed participants, giving them the time and space for deep thinking and an opportunity to share ideas and collaborate in a unique and intimate environment. The agenda includes workshops on the mountain, panel discussions on a farm, alpine hikes and privately hosted dinners.

By Invitation Only

TKF creates a space in which time is set aside for participants with relevant backgrounds to focus on a single issue. We have heard too often, from NGOs, investors, entrepreneurs, that their schedules do not usually allow for this deep thinking. Our focus is on creating viable solutions, which we do by creating networks, brokering collaborations and incubating thought leadership.

TKF Objectives

Accelerating Change
Initiating Collaborations
Avoiding Duplication of Work
Networking for Good
