Powering a brighter future

Our planet faces enormous economical, social and environmental challenges and despite important progress, no country is on track to achieve all SDGs by 2030. Awareness is growing that the SDGs, the Paris Agreement and sustainable development beyond 2030 can only be achieved through transformational change and that without these  transformations we will never achieve truly social inclusivity and environmentally sustainable economies and societies.

Today there are fundamental transformations of the societal systems regarding transport and infrastructure. How can a startup change the behavior of a whole industry and what is required from the society to make this happens?

Listen to Anders Forslund, the founder of Heart Aerospace, who is one of the game changers in the flight industry. You will get the chance to listen to Mikael Von Dorrien from The Nordic Innovation House who will explain how they can assist companies like this to hit the global market and Maria Fiskerud who will talk about how they, together with other actors, work to accelerate the introduction of electric aviation in the Nordic countries.
