- Circular economy
Many distinguished guests and experts from these sectors will be present at the official opening and closing of the Summit as well as throughout the event, including Valérie Plante, Mayor of Montréal, Luis Alfonso De Alba, Mexican diplomat and special envoy for the 2019 Climate Summit, Pierre Cannet, Head of Climate, Energy and Sustainable Cities Programs at the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in France, and Florent Menegaux, the new CEO of the Michelin Group.
The program includes numerous presentations led by the best thought leaders from these fields, who will share their passion, vision and knowledge on the many stages. Moreover, during the days of the event, participants will be able to participate in many intriguing and surprising activities.
Essential activities of the Movin'On Summit, the three labs dedicated to experimental ideation will disrupt participants' way of thinking. The "Slow-Lab" will explore the potential of slowness and access new ways of learning, creating meaning and thinking critically. The "In the dark" lab will challenge participants to solve problems together in the dark. The "Pivot" lab will explore strength, interconnection and resilience.
In addition to the labs, there will be 5 thematic areas that will transport participants into a technological world where the event partners present their contribution to tomorrow's mobility. For their part, the working sessions, in the form of "Think and Do Tank" group discussions, or presentations led by a recognized expert, will engage participants in a collaborative activity based on their field of expertise.
"Braindates" are targeted meetings in which participants are paired according to their common interests. These constructive 30-minute meetings are personalized by matchmaking experts who will be on site to introduce you to participants with whom you may have chemistry.
