The Speakers, Topics and Agenda for The Community Leadership Summit #3, Copenhagen

On September 6, 2019,  80 community leaders across industries come together to share, discuss and find new ways of bringing people together in the future.

At the Community Leadership Summit #3 we’ll explore the power of movements; how movements form, grow and impact the world around us, why they matter today and how they transform how we gather, participate and belong.

Applications are still open.
