Theme: Rebuild to Thrive

This event occurred on
April 28, 2021
Lausanne, Vaud (fr)

Pandemic, Climate change, the loss of loved ones, or a career that is no longer satisfying; at some point in our live, we all need to take a step back to reconsider our purposes, our activities, and our goals. From starting a new venture to discussing the future of space exploration, our speakers will embark you on a journey to how we can all rebuild to thrive, as a personal quest for happiness or as a collective endeavour for greatness.
