The event is organized by Institute for Strategic Solutions in co-organization with the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and SPIRIT, the public agency of the Republic of Slovenia for the promotion of entrepreneurship, innovation, development, investment, and tourism. The event will take place at the Minorite Church and Monastery (Vojašniški trg 2, 2000 Maribor) in Maribor, Slovenia, on 6 September 2022.
The purpose of the event is to connect representatives of corporations and companies, politicians, non-governmental organizations, international agencies, as well as innovators of breakthrough solutions and representatives of the financial community. The program focuses on carbon neutrality and zero emissions, since virtually all important stakeholders and partners agree these are key elements of the future. However, strategies differ and rarely apply to entire organizations with their supply chains and this presents unique challenges. Our aim is to offer insight on ideas and integrated solutions - and build bridges between potential partners.
The full-day program is pursuing the theme of the event, and includes carbon neutral traveling from Ljubljana to Maribor by train and arriving at the event by bicycles.
