Nordic Future is the story of our futures of work, life and the nest opportunities to reinvent our operating systems. We invite you to act now on our global challenges.
We welcome impact entrepreneurs to scale-up to our network evolution with investors and ecosystems of GAME CHANGERS
We will be asking the big, difficult questions about adapting to climate change, decentralization, and the future of everything.
How will digitalization, the global challenges and the Industry 4.0 impact us? Big challenges requires big Ideas!
We want to create more global visibility and attracting talent to Helsinki and the New Nordics.
(New Nordics are the Nordics and Baltics).
We are INVITING you to join startups, entrepreneurs, investors, and change-makers with solutions, ideas, and interests to act NOW.
You will learn more in each of our co-creation focus tracks to solve our global challenges and make the world a better place.
Bring your passion!

We all feel the transformation of everything we know shifting in front of us.
Many of us want to contribute towards a more just, equal and sustainable future and the time for action is NOW!
Stepping into a new decade, the future seems closer than ever. As humans, the real opportunities lie in our power to bring value to the wellbeing of humankind and nature.
We’ve assembled the best of the best from around the world to change the conversation into meaningful action right here in Helsinki.
Join us and lets rewrite history right here, right now.
More than half of us live in cities. By 2050, two-thirds of all humanity—6.5 billion people—will be urban.
Sustainable development cannot be achieved without significantly transforming the way we build and manage our urban spaces.
Important that we also do this in combination with rural and urban areas in collaboration.

Our Nordic circular co-creation model is based on Questions that lead the focus and power of creative communities.
- What progress is made?
- What if we...?
- How might we fix this?
- Let's see what's happening now?
These caring questions are the foundation of our Nordic circular co-creation model. We have
intentionally iterated this Nordic formula for many years; based upon the strengths-based,
innovative and circling Appreciate Inquiry approach (AI).
Our objective is to bring real, sustainable value to each attendee, partners, and share it with followers online.
You will get inspiration, guidance, and use tools in dialogue with the supportive network of other co-creators. You will take direct action on the relevant topic/interest of yours as a concrete result.
Our International, national, and local inspiration thought leaders and practitioners, sharing whats going on in the world, is mixed in moderated interactive dialogues during three sets per day.
That energy and the insights that we transform and take with us into these three sessions over
each day is leading us to a more self-organizing, learning, and caring - Nordic future.
Each of the days at the Nordic FUTURE has a life-giving rhythm of;
In the mornings:
- What progress is made? - This dialogue is about discovering the best things to bring
with us into the future, our success factors, high-quality connections, and the process that
- What if we ...? - is about dreaming and imagine new possibilities, future opportunities,
and scenarios that we together would love to see come true.
The afternoon after lunch focuses on:
- How might we fix this? - Fixing tools for this is design and prototyping and is about
build to think and to be able and test what wows people. To build and, to test out, our
ideas on people to make them say: Yes, We want more of that! Or show them your
prototype to make them say, No, that is not what We want! Refine them and make them
- Let's see whats happening now? - The magic of Destiny is about connecting with the
people and resources that want our great ideas to come true.
We do that by gathering at optional evening events each day to continue sharing ideas, network, and co-create a flourishing future. And meet and share online on our channels.
Let us Co-create a flourishing, inspiring, caring Nordic FUTURE, that you personally, and others want to see come true!
