A very modern, barrier-free location for conferences, meetings and cultural events, which focuses on the economical use of energy as well as organic products and regional production in its restaurants and catering. It is located in a beautiful landscape in the middle of the Alps (Vorarlberg region), right on the shores of Lake Constance, surrounded by three countries, i.e. Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
The event is organised in cooperation with the Mayor of Bregenz, the Government of the Vorarlberg county, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, Convention Partner Vorarlberg and the Hilti Foundation and the Festival House Bregenz.
The World Future Council, founded in 2007 in Hamburg, is actively working in the fields of Climate and Energy, Regenerative Cities, Sustainable Ecosystems, Future Justice, Peace and Disarmament and Sustainable Economies. It identifies the most successful regional, national and international policies in these fields and promotes them in order to solve the most pressing problems of our time. As an example, the work of the Council has greatly contributed to the adoption of Renewable Energy Feed-in Tariff policies in many countries and regions.
