Welcome to Our New World Week

The DO is thrilled to host its third global community gathering of courageous leaders, leading experts and young impact entrepreneurs. Following We Emerge Week (2020) and We Accelerate Week (2021), we will take stock and openly discuss the biggest priorities for 2023 in using business as a force for good.

Our 2022 gathering will focus on the Our New World movement: highlighting people and places who are building a better future, how we can learn from their example, and together solve the big challenges of our time.

Our New World Week Summit

How do we overcome challenges and seize opportunities in Our New World? Select members of The DO’s European community will come together at The DO Berlin Space to share best practices and discuss key priorities for 2023.

Four themes will guide the day:

  • How DO we achieve speed in making our businesses and societies fit for the next chapter?
  • What kind of leadership helps us navigate short-term vs long-term goals in the green economy?
  • How DOes our organization partake in the upskilling revolution?
  • How DO we build ecosystems on the key challenges we cannot solve on our own?

Join a uniquely multidisciplinary and diverse community to explore these themes. Contributors include:
