Lifelong learning begins. Because the next 'Summer of Purpose' is just around the corner.
The summer of purpose connects Munich with the world. For the big goal: the era of regeneration.
WHAT IS THE SUMMER OF PURPOSE 2021?
The original idea continues: Guided by the social sciences, we want to bring like-minded people and pioneers of change together in an interdisciplinary manner - for an open exchange.
In 2021, however, the goal will be even greater: not only to network people, but also to bundle forces and coordinate initiatives.
Munich, our "Global Village", is the location and the window to the world.
On the way up to 2025, the Summer of Purpose is to create a strong community that drives the great transformation of regeneration in a wide variety of interaction formats and design spaces.
What distinguishes the Summer of Purpose?
The Summer of Purpose tries to find an answer to the pressing questions of our time - by searching for and defining PURPOSE.
The goal: Everyone starts in their immediate, organizational ecosystem and sets off for the transformation and the new era of regeneration.
He relies on different formats and interactive stylistic devices so that the expanding forces have an innovative effect on the form of dialogue.
First and foremost, the SoP relies on established relationships: all those invited are already connected to one another by other participants; this relationship culture creates a basis for trust and the special courage to change.
And this relationship culture continues to have an effect: In the first 9 days, projects are initiated which are then further developed over the summer (and with a long-term perspective of 5 years).
9 days make a start.
9 DAYS OF LEARNOVATION.
As learning together. Intensive cooperation. Concrete further development.
We want to expand our scope of action. To make the necessary, great t ransformation real. Our environment becomes a new social world. Beyond sustainability: towards a regenerative reality.
The pandemic throws us back on ourselves.
So, let's start with our potentials.
Let's tackle it and get creative!

SCOPE OF ACTION
The international Colloquium 51 provides a space for social creativity and an economic dialogue that ranges from the theory of natural and social science to entrepreneurial action.
about Colloquium51 2020
INSPIRED BY HOLISTIC SCIENCE
The hybrid dialogue platform has kicked off a creative thinking process guided by 3 key questions that are inspired by social science:
Why are contributions to the common good less valued
by the system than speculative investments at stock markets?
How can we create a society that considers the rights of all
life on this planet? And what is the role of corporates
and the economy to sustain those rights in the future?
What are the key findings and lessons learned
that we can take from the pandemic crisis?
