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.
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.
Avoiding Duplication of Work
Networking for Good
In June 2019 TKF brought together for a second year, practitioners, funders, business-leaders and change-makers to tackle plastic pollution. We provided a platform for conversations and collaborations between decision-makers who can, together, develop and fund solutions to effectively address the problem of the over-abundance of plastic in our ecosystem.
