so good afternoon also on behalf of the swiss economic forum i'm actually very on or to be a why
00:00:07
this was economic form every year we organise about seven major conferences in the more than thirty smaller events
00:00:13
and i do know that those conferences that are other place
00:00:16
like here where the problems with also the opportunities arise
00:00:20
other ones the good ones so i'm happy to be review here and to share our
00:00:24
thoughts i'm also here with you because i believe that we share a common calls
00:00:32
as entrepreneurs and as companies or as people we have to take responsibility for the
00:00:37
future for plants in doing so we securing the future also for our children
00:00:44
so when starting two thousand ninety you know later to
00:00:47
suisse economic form will be launching a new platform
00:00:51
that will effectively support circle economy in switzerland and also give for momentum to circular economy
00:00:58
we call it so click on any entrepreneurs c. two and the headline is shaping
00:01:02
the future of pieces together i'm here today review to briefly present initiative
00:01:08
the roots of the project and also to receive you feedback and i'm
00:01:12
looking for discussion at the end so in our view sustainability
00:01:19
climate change and also circular can only face certain challenges
00:01:23
and this also in july a federal council laurie
00:01:26
toward spoken why the first problems we have in switzerland in reaching to a twenty thirty goals
00:01:33
if the implementation to realisations you also mentioned
00:01:37
that innovation and entrepreneurship are very important
00:01:42
so the topic is more present than ever and innovation entrepreneurship play a big role
00:01:48
so i know you sustainability to make the challenge of our time innovation a new technical solution
00:01:54
can be developed at that university and they are developed that universities but at the end
00:02:00
they need to be implemented by business empire yes amazing day to day
00:02:04
operations so regarding circular economy and sustainability the gap between knowledge
00:02:11
and action has to be close and the main question my view our first do we how do
00:02:17
we change the habits of the people and of the businessman how do we change their mindsets
00:02:23
and how do we uh build up momentum for circular economy in switzerland
00:02:30
so i'll international companies actually all ready to kinda shitty phone started some
00:02:35
uh projects um implementing circle economists several years ago
00:02:39
but now is the time for suisse entrepreneurs and see sesame
00:02:42
is to react and start rethinking the basis models
00:02:47
they're already various initiatives also to bring together circular
00:02:50
economy activists and ideas and projects like um
00:02:54
uh impact top and others but in my view there hasn't been a lift
00:02:58
off yet so they need some power the idea need some power
00:03:04
and here it is maybe where our organisation can make a difference and you
00:03:08
want to make it different and help it to two plus some
00:03:12
so this this economic forum has a mission to support and
00:03:15
to foster and the entrepreneurship and innovation in switzerland
00:03:20
i was trying to is to bring together the right people at the right place at the right time
00:03:27
so just a brief uh um overview what we do we are the leading conference
00:03:33
organised utterance with someone so we host seven major conferences throughout the year
00:03:39
in various fields like health care really state also uh an action climate and momentum worse
00:03:45
we do have about thirty employees into one sonya burn we about eighty five
00:03:50
partnership of major companies that help was two am carry those have conference's
00:03:55
we are in direct contact with but want it on the printers in switzerland so they give us feedback
00:04:00
and they tell us whether pain points are in the daily basis and also in the future
00:04:06
we scout and engage approximately three hundred speaker every year for our stages
00:04:12
and for our of words and challenges we have three words we give amongst them the swiss economical work
00:04:18
uh we will evaluate some five hundred startups every year so we
00:04:22
know exactly what is going on the distorted because use them
00:04:25
in switzerland and all together we will come around five thousand people on the sea level on our conferences in switzerland
00:04:33
we finally helped to games we sesame is growth capital of more
00:04:38
than one in ten million swiss francs so that's we
00:04:40
sesame and young entrepreneur already to grow not to not to
00:04:44
um to to start there i'm not to start the
00:04:48
companies put to grow went to expand and foreign countries all
00:04:51
together with more than twenty years of experience is organising
00:04:55
conferences and supporting suisse entrepreneurship so swiss economic form is very
00:04:59
proficient in providing ecosystem for swiss businesspeople and entrepreneurs
00:05:06
but does not only assist economic forum we do also care
00:05:09
for the topic of climate change sustainability in circular economy
00:05:13
so we've been caring caring about sustainability for more than ten years why
00:05:19
in two thousand four with formal weiss president al gore the swiss economic
00:05:23
forum into and he was talking to us about the importance
00:05:28
uh of climate issues so then we decided to work on that topic
00:05:32
which was not on our agenda actually and in two thousand seven
00:05:36
we launch to suisse and a chain climate summit sonya it more
00:05:40
than ten years ago works without the swiss antigen climate summit
00:05:43
and that we do have more than twelve years experience in the field of
00:05:46
energy and sustainability this year's edition will be a nineteenth of september
00:05:52
it has to turn it on the move co creating a up to change and during those twelve years we already had a
00:05:59
lot of interesting speakers on our stages you can see some of
00:06:03
them here on the slide my cluster actually last year
00:06:10
now after twelve years we decided to shift and to reposition the conference
00:06:16
we decided to shift away from awareness to action as the climate issues interview and i
00:06:22
was sufficiently present in the people's mind now i think it's time to act
00:06:27
so the opportunities and challenges of circle economy must be economically on the stupid and implemented
00:06:33
we shall challenge the mindset of the business people now this is why we launch
00:06:39
most probably in two thousand nineteen a new platform which is called
00:06:43
circular economy on to put a so see you too
00:06:47
see to actually it is more much more than a conference
00:06:51
so we will actually move away from the conference alone
00:06:54
so but we will be a platform as it brings together relevant
00:06:58
players anti strengthens their community because now we can see now
00:07:02
in my we we do have some actors in switzerland they already leaf the circular economy but you have time
00:07:09
i think that we have to bring them together so they can build up a strong community so
00:07:15
the c. two consists of three main elements will have as today here we'll have a main
00:07:21
conference uh actually a lighthouse conference they be from three hundred to four hundred participants somewhere
00:07:27
in switzerland the consists of keynote speeches talks a panel discussions i'm
00:07:33
gonna do it will provide cross sector pieces cases and
00:07:37
also success stories that inspire and bring to put bring together
00:07:41
suisse key people then we will have in c. too
00:07:45
lead so at least four times will have meetings all around switzerland maybe else or
00:07:50
pure in like the above there to bring together relevant back doesn't to strengthen
00:07:54
local networks from should you re launch or a breakfast
00:08:00
last but not least we'll have a website where we provide
00:08:02
international like this international and national uh information circular economy
00:08:09
so we for try to summarise before maybe you have some question no i inputs twelve idea
00:08:14
we believe that we have the responsibility for protecting our environment
00:08:20
in doing so we're securing a future for our children
00:08:24
we do believe that circular come is considered the promising
00:08:27
and profitable model for forward looking and sustainable world
00:08:32
this means bringing together innovative goods and services to the
00:08:36
market and developing sustainable and profitable business models
00:08:41
the swiss economic forum believes in the power of entrepreneurial action in
00:08:45
the power of innovation and the benefit of conferences like today
00:08:49
you're gonna save has more than twenty years experience and even more now we
00:08:53
have the powers we're part of the n. c. c. media group
00:08:58
we believe and we deliver internationally input at c. to a network to the relevant
00:09:03
players in switzerland and together we can then be shaping the future of business
00:09:13
so it's a lunch i'll be leading we need clever policy regulation to foster circular economy
00:09:20
we need innovation but we need what we need most uh
00:09:22
well designed well government and input control colour colour collaborations
00:09:27
see to the new platform one so helps with someone to become the leading circular economy
00:09:33
we want to grow and leveraged community of forward thinking on to present policymakers in switzerland
00:09:40
so now i have several questions to discuss with you but i'm ready
00:09:44
to also questions or to receive a feedback on their idea
00:09:48
i wish you all happy stay here and lydia when the good safe return home
00:09:58
hi yes
00:10:02
yeah i have a question i admit microphone so it's on taken advantage of this um
00:10:10
in this project of so of c. to um how will you select the participants
00:10:17
the old one of those with the did you read how how we view
00:10:22
you mean the participant yeah the participants movie is you know
00:10:26
you have to build credibility as well uh uh in
00:10:30
as the way the uh the entrepreneurs are really dedicated did you get into that
00:10:37
as a as a can imagine during those twenty years of experience in working get was was on them as we've huge database
00:10:43
but we do not want to invite whoever wants to come you know i used to say that
00:10:47
there are always some middle management people want to spend their day in the office but
00:10:52
as they have to go to a conference but is not the people don't have at our
00:10:56
conference so what we usually do we work together with partners so we left the partners
00:11:01
uh to invite their i guess that would people they think or change makes for thinking people
00:11:07
and usually one quarter of the people we just in wide full free so we
00:11:10
all ski advisory boards will still to printers we have in our proximity
00:11:15
who are the people that are leading in circular comic i might i might else e. p. f.
00:11:19
l. i might ask all the people from impact up so bring us the interesting people
00:11:23
that really are able to change you know to do momentum into its own full circle economy
00:11:28
so the conference will be as all of all of our conference will be only mutation
00:11:33
so there will be only selected handpicked by and pick people at the conference that's what we try to do and
00:11:38
if you succeed will have very interesting people we have
00:11:41
very interesting discussions there and interesting cases on stage
00:11:47
yes
00:11:54
i have two questions on a first date it you know add
00:11:58
anything initiative not secure had nine yes we try to
00:12:02
be in contact we've we've you know we try to probably cannot put uh let shape the future of pieces together
00:12:08
in that we only wanna work lower actually tried it might if
00:12:10
everybody's around identical over it and i think you had an
00:12:16
sell uh you'll be talking to you guys already a are seeking to do secular economy
00:12:22
and are you all's said politics i i could get to parenting things to join
00:12:29
yes absolutely that that we have to and that's we know where we help by the power of the of the
00:12:34
n. c. c. which is a newspaper in the tremor part of sorts and that's quite a strong liberal newspaper
00:12:39
so we hope to have coverage in the n. c. c. and so to develop a momentum actually for the whole thing to start
00:12:44
you know if you only bring together the entrepreneurs that already practically
00:12:48
so try to practised profitable circle economy it doesn't help
00:12:52
so that's why we thought we might make a difference as we have a huge crowd inserts and we
00:12:57
know will be on top and as we know the investors so we try to um yeah
00:13:01
to foster you know sir click on it so it's and so your we also want to reach
00:13:04
those people that are close but we also want to reach let's let's say a bank
00:13:09
to say okay if we now uh by new chairs for the office
00:13:13
the selection criteria we want only be the price and the design but also for instance we usability
00:13:20
okay so stuff like excellent so we have to have a momentum so it has to be sexy the and the
00:13:24
circle economy wanna try to make it more six and that that may be able to it's like that
00:13:33
i get collaborate with it i think that's chair at m. i. r. i. e. s. g. m. e.
00:13:40
yeah absolutely our platforms on meeting that's right we try to express was shaping the future pieces together
00:13:50
right i'm just wide you know what you could uh necessary components for instance in there which is
00:13:59
oh it out rated it is
00:14:04
hence the uh the the small entrepreneur that's just
00:14:07
getting started and the middle man um
00:14:11
or is it just yeah just passed by a mare encountered unpacked the politicians
00:14:17
intern who are the are doing circuit academy i could not answer
00:14:21
uh can you hold yes uh we try to help you know s. s. v. signal waveform as a huge stand in
00:14:27
the in the channel part of switzerland uh now network so we try to leverage on on the strength right
00:14:33
so these all we can bring is our experience now network so we have direct access to federal counsellors
00:14:38
politicians so we might be able to make a small difference for the project itself yeah
00:14:46
uh_huh
00:14:52
yeah so i can hear you i'm full translation
00:14:58
right um well have make wasn't well first right that you'd do thoughts
00:15:03
thing about a circular cannot meet certain is quite amazing that
00:15:07
uh i got to china these no one chinese discourse
00:15:10
political level without circulate economy being completely bad it
00:15:14
in the policy yeah so i think it's about time that we do the same in europe
00:15:18
uh no i'm on my question what what value to use the echo the
00:15:23
lash because your core the big uh confirms or denies arising out confirms
00:15:27
has values definitely smaller what value do you see in a curvy lines in terms of circular economy and walked
00:15:34
a calibration more it could you envisage we probably we might be complimentary not come to competitors
00:15:40
yeah i believe incorporation nothing in competition so i think what is interesting here in the modern deeply touched here
00:15:47
you know those conferences are strong if they are all i have is it authentic
00:15:52
so you can feely here is we're here in lady oblivion up down in monterey at the congress centre you know the laws
00:15:57
on in some kind of a five star hotel but we appeal where we can see the problems but also the opportunities
00:16:04
so it's a for things so i think it's a very credible conference up here um so the corporation at the the
00:16:10
as i mentioned before will have various elements in the c. two platform and we also have laps so why
00:16:16
not making one laptop here and bringing together you know more
00:16:19
people inviting other people leverage also that it the challenges
00:16:23
of eco systems and all of those are the laws and small um houses to a small towns up here
00:16:29
so this i think is a corporation uh we can also bring in
00:16:33
our network to help you to have more uh um maybe
00:16:37
i'm participant from the german part of sweets on the what do i mean yeah for me it's collaboration up a competition
00:16:44
we have those we have already set a date or almost in september cafe together so yeah
00:16:51
yeah it's a yeah it's an ongoing process now yep
00:17:03
i think you i love and about a
00:17:09
and do we ian's yeah have the ark it's an innovation up uh_huh that sponsors a lots
00:17:15
of uh entrepreneurs or yeah yeah or it's it's
00:17:19
uh are highly regarded initiative my only
00:17:24
um i'd say the largest challenge for it's from my
00:17:27
perspective being there and taking industry right now
00:17:31
is that they cater almost exclusively tissue technology startups
00:17:36
uh_huh and when you talk about innovation
00:17:39
that is generally i mean you has some consumer guides
00:17:42
you have technology uh uh startups coming up
00:17:48
fifteen twenty times here and i'm guessing that that's most of the
00:17:53
people that you know now when you say that you have
00:17:56
all these hundreds of contacts in the uh in the entrepreneurial sector in switzerland
00:18:02
what would you say would be the sectors that are not enough
00:18:05
involved in uh innovation and circular colony and so it's it's
00:18:11
i'm thinking for example i dunno agriculture or or a artist in woodworking or or what
00:18:17
what would you see the opportunity there what would you see the the gap that
00:18:21
we thought was we have to differentiate between innovation per se and circle economy
00:18:26
so what i can say right now as we for instance we have to swiss economical word which is an award
00:18:32
national award for the young entrepreneurs less than seven years old their company has to be less
00:18:37
than ten years old and we have three categories actually there we've high tech biotech
00:18:41
we have um services and we do have production and we see that every year
00:18:47
the number of uh applications from the production category diminishes
00:18:51
i don't think it's very very difficult in switzerland ought to be you know very innovative in the in the production field
00:18:57
so agriculture maybe but also making knives in switzerland producing cheese
00:19:02
uh ma'am has a neat and stuff like that
00:19:05
for the circular economy as far as i can tell ready now i'm not an expert as you all are
00:19:10
but i think it's it's a whole economy that still has a problem
00:19:13
in thinking of circle economists and thinking of negative external it is
00:19:18
but not all sit and circle economy my views very often reduced to waste topic
00:19:23
so we have to reduce waste recycle waste well it's a mindset question in my view
00:19:28
so to to really to to minimise the that the and negative external it
00:19:32
does so in if you if you if you consider it like that
00:19:36
it's the whole economy that is tops you know and then they have to walk their talk you
00:19:40
know i'm very close to um company a gay asparagus so they produce those chairs for offices
00:19:46
and he says i know i can take back all the chairs and i can refurbish
00:19:50
them i can give him back or sell them or whatever but if i apply
00:19:54
and to to furnish an office you know at the end is the price maybe the design
00:19:58
but not the criteria of if we're whether it's being taken back and reuse and
00:20:03
stuff like that so i think it's it's it's also the one that by
00:20:08
stuff it's it's the uh how is it the providers of services and of good so it's the whole system that has to change
00:20:14
and it doesn't actually my view so that's why you wanna use our pool our power
00:20:19
to maybe helped change to people because i i believe in i can feel that the wave now is coming
00:20:25
if circular gonna be the consumers are changing and also the companies and
00:20:28
we just wanna uh like the fire a little bit more
00:20:32
as good as we can do you think that in this in this sense it would be possible to uh oh
00:20:38
label oh the circular economy factor as so
00:20:43
in energy for instance when you buy afraid she has a a plus or
00:20:48
be easy sheets et cetera ah she she noted she also i
00:20:53
we always say we're we're on top an aerial thinking and we believe innovation so we'll be do not believe in the in the in
00:21:00
the government was tells us what to buy and what to do so we believe in entrepreneurs because it's the only way to
00:21:05
it's fosters innovation so but still that's white circle economy has to be profitable
00:21:10
you have to be a business you know so we have to convince the consumers in my view that they buy those
00:21:16
preaches that or better or a categorise that as okay for circular economy so we have to make it sexy
00:21:22
so then it the momentum starts and from the side of the economy able also from the consumers
00:21:30
good luck in still another question yeah
00:21:33
get hired on i think on the time but i and i can't wear secular economy has completely taken now
00:21:41
and and hand uh_huh what i see that it's it's sexy already
00:21:46
that had it starts taking out maybe can sexy because
00:21:50
the parts i yeah that that that they don't need to tell us i think they don't have to go to the city
00:21:55
i tell something in the trash you get a they don't have to
00:21:58
do that and not having a negative impact so i think and
00:22:03
hats by doing what you're doing and i think you're great decision to bring a different people together
00:22:08
back the bowels could start rolling quickly so i think a
00:22:14
yeah i get that we need to create it'll be sexy here um it has no not only the brownies people
00:22:19
slow but the swiss people say seem to be slow and we need to yeah best of holland so
00:22:25
to discuss the nice people so because they waiting on the people from from sorry guy from ah or
