  2. Debate: How do we design for all?

    Our society today is not designed for elders or citizens with disabilities. Why do we organize ourselves in a way that limits equal opportunities for all? Our CEO Christian Bason is part of the panel discussing the subject.

  3. Policy Lab: How does the future of aging look?

    Join us at our Policy Lab – we’re hosting with our partners Mandag Morgen and Danish Life Science Cluster. The Policy Lab consists of three heats of debate sessions zooming in on some of the themes and dilemmas we worked with in creating alternative futures for aging and care. With an offset in our provoking future fragments, we dive into discussions on:

    Concerns and challenges of the current generations when imagining our future senior life
    The future for our welfare and healthcare system in Denmark as more people live longer with diagnoses and expenses are on the rise
    • How welfare technology can be part of the solution in creating a balance between human and digital solutions to our current challenges

    Time: June 18, 2.30 PM

  4. Debate: Adding aesthetics to our green future

    The European Commission’s initiative New European Bauhaus (NEB) calls for the green transition to be sustainable, inclusive, and aesthetic – not only hardcore energy-optimizing.
    Based on NEB and the Danish-led DESIRE bid for an NEB Lighthouse Demonstrator – “Designing the irresistible circular society,” we debate how closer collaboration between art, design and green business will unfold. And what must politicians do for us to succeed?

    • MEP Morten Løkkegaard, (V – Renew)
    • Madeleine Kate McGowan, Nxt
    Karin Thuesen Pedersen, COWI
    • Andreas Vetö, Danmarks Underholdningsorkester

  5. Are our future businesses democratic?

    How will the new cooperatives change our working lives and societies in the future? Join us as we both celebrate Kooperationen’s 100th anniversary and discuss the role of cooperative companies in the (working) life of the future. Why choose to start a cooperative today? As a cooperative company, how do you want to influence society and your working life?
