Springtij Forum 2019

Date: 26 September 2019 - 28 September 2019
Location: Terschelling
  • Springtide is a key meeting point for all who are committed to achieving the better future.
  • Springtide brings together all who can drive forward thinking: The visionaries, designers, financiers, policy makers, the world of business and science. At Springtij they get to work together, plan new concepts and system changes. This year will be our ninth meeting of minds. A similar formula proved successful at the Global Summit of The Club of Rome, hosted in Amsterdam in 2009.
  • What makes Springtide special? See our images, videos and media articles online at:

Springtide is working towards a sustainable planet. We are pledged to the dynamic vision outlined in The Limits to Growth report (1972). The findings of this report still stand, based on the latest data And For our Common Fiuture by the Brundtland Commission (1987) which stressed it all once more.

Problems can be solved by broadening our perspectives, work experience, and re-examining how we operate (organisationally, per sector, per country).

We believe in highlighting not only the dangers, but also the system changes and innovations. That is our ‘Springtij Libretto’. This is what drives us and the programmes we organise.

Springtide’s Libretto is defined by the dynamic correlation of variables and indicators that determine our planet’s fate. Invariably, matters such as these can be discussed academically at any conference centre. However, at Springtide we draw the link between such all-important issues affecting the planet and art, culture, landscape, perception and the island where we meet. Each Springtide gathering forms a complete and collective experience, always geared to reaching consensus.
