MindShift – Our shared commitment to Growth that Matters

You are invited to join the global launch of the "Growth that Matters Manifesto" - an emerging alliance between Sweden's most innovative organizations, institutions, scientists and thought leaders.

The Nordic countries have been pioneers in the fields of gender equality and sustainability. Now it is time to lead the systematic work for supporting individuals’ lifelong development and growth. 

In the short term, it will help create competitive advantages for you and your organization. In the long term, it can strengthen all of humanity’s ability to reach our Global Goals. Be part of a transformational event, where we mix the brightest minds from the scientific community with senior decision makers and practitioners from the private and public sector. 


During the morning session, 09:00–12:00, you will get input from renown researchers and practitioners from Sweden and Europe and you will be able to choose from several digital tracks, including:

  • A: The science of human development – meet prominent scientists sharing their insights on how we systemically can help people to grow and handle the complexities of our time.
  • B: Developing everyone in our organizations – meet and learn from senior leaders from the private and the public sector who are making human development a true priority.  
  • C: How to scale and democratise inner development - From growth for a few, to growth for many – meet entrepreneurs and people who have managed to simplify and scale tools for personal development, reaching out to thousands of people.

Join us in the afternoon, 13:30–16:30 if you want to listen to the brilliant minds from the global community reflecting on some of the biggest vulnerabilities and challenges we have as individuals, groups and organizations, and how we might find ways to get more resilient by a Growth that Matters:

We have a shared challenge.

Our technological power has been increasing exponentially, but our ability to use it wisely has not.

We are building vast and complex civilizations, yet that very complexity is in danger of overwhelming us, creating huge and unintended consequences for all people and the planet.

A MindShift is needed, where we systematically start mastering and applying the tools of inner growth and development, to meet this shared challenge of ours.
