Building bridges for the future we all deserve
The Rethink Process is defined as the greatest international reflection and action process for knowledge nomads.
The process is the opportunity to build bridges, join forces and gather input from the main stakeholders who are building the future: researchers, developers, scientists, NGOs, public officials and policymakers, entrepreneurs and investors, community leaders and all those who strive to ensure that the 4th Industrial Revolution in which we find ourselves leads to a sustainable future for the planet while respecting human dignity.
PRIVACY AND DIGNITY ARE UNDER PRESSURE.
Emerging industries are seeking new forms of production that lead to a sustainable future for the planet and societies.
However, until now there is no space for encounter and interconnection between those who are building that future.
EMERGING INDUSTRIES AND THE PUBLIC SECTOR REQUIRE MULTIDISCIPLINARY SPACES FOR THE EXCHANGE OF IDEAS.
Accessing talent and multidisciplinary thinking is a disconcerting, inefficient and inconsistent process: there is no platform that allows the private sector, civil society, academia and states to connect with talent through a single platform, presenting ideas, negotiating and developing innovative alternatives to global problems.
THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, BLOCKCHAIN, ROBOTICS, SMART CITIES, IoT AND CANNABIS INDUSTRIES ARE THE FASTEST GROWING SEGMENT IN THE FOURTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION.
The Rethink Process expects results
in four phases developed over five years
