Martin Koehring

Global Director of Impact, Forum for the Future


How the shift to a just and regenerative mindset can help us to navigate the age of polycrisis.

Albert Einstein said: “You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it”. Adopting a new mindset can set free the energy we need to resolve the ‘polycrisis’ of climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution and injustice.

Martin will talk, on Saturday 9 December, on the TEDxPatras stage, about the six dimensions – personal, social, political, economic, organizational and ecological – of regenerating our mindset.
