  • Trust and cooperation are important values in Norway. We’re known internationally for our role in peace negotiations, and—like our Nordic neighbors—for setting aside around 1 % of our GDP for humanitarian aid. Not until now, though, have you really heard people talk openly about doing good, and also doing good business, in the same sentence. Case in point: The 2018 Business for Peace summit kicks off in Oslo in the same week as this year’s Katapult Future Fest, in the middle of May (there’s also Oslo Freedom Forum later in the same month).

  • From all of us to all of you; HAPPY HOLIDAYS 🌟🌟🌟 Here’s to rocking another year of impact in 2018 🎉🎉🎉
  • Speaker announcement! Joshua Fost Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at Minerva Schools at KGI “We are doing a terrible job as ecological and societal caretakers”, states Joshua Fost from Minerva Schools, and speaker at KFF18. Fost presses on that “we need better minds - not just better technology - in order to build a sustainable civilization”. The Future of Education is learning how to never stop learning. It may seem obvious, but for 1000 years the School system has not been developed. Today, higher education is in trouble. The teaching methods - mostly lectures - which have dominated university classrooms for the last 1,000 years are known to be largely ineffective. To prepare for a tech-driven and fast-changing future, lifelong learning is crucial. In May, Fost will push us out of our dated comfort zone and into the Future of Education as he takes to the stage of Katapult Future Fest 2018! We're excited to welcome him to Oslo!
