Xynteo Exchange

Having an impact on complex challenges such as climate change and the shifting social contract requires more than an individual response - it demands collaborative action.

The Xynteo Exchange / Norway brings together mission-driven leaders and practitioners across business, academia, the arts, and activism to accelerate collaborative action to tackle systemic problems, and re-think growth models that are no longer future-fit.

Unfortunately, owing to the pandemic, we were not able to bring people together again physically in 2020. This instead evolved into a virtual Xynteo Exchange session held January 2021 – click below to learn more!
