Future Leadership, Movements, Community,

This summit is part of Techfestival: a 3-day festival in Copenhagen with 200+ events on humans and technology.
Interested? Great! Please apply to join. Note that this summit has limited seats.

An intimate gathering for people who bring people together

If tech is so disruptive to our systems, how come the communities of the world continue to thrive?

Community leaders from across industries meet to explore the economics, technology and culture that drive communities in today’s hyperspeed world.

Community leaders gather to discuss how some of today’s strongest communities are built around movements. We explore how community leaders have successfully identified cultural shifts at an early stage and build on that to bring people together.

We explore how movements form, grow and impact the world around us, why they matter today, and how they transform how we gather, participate and belong.

No keynotes, no slides. 100% real talk through breakout sessions, short talks and 1-0n-1 conversations.

Final agenda TBA.

Key Questions to explore

  • What constitutes a movement?
  • What values are movements built on today?
  • How do we identify shifting cultural norms?
  • Who leads movements today?
  • How do we organise ourselves?

Who should join?

The Community Leadership Summit is for people who build, lead and manage communities – from the powerful few to millions of members: Entrepreneurs, technologists, marketers, activists, communication specialists, strategists, researchers, organisers, founders, CEOs, investors and philosophers from a broad range of industries.
