Event Description

Not all summer festivals have been cancelled! OPP presents IF2020, the Ideas Festival. Bringing together 2,000 policymakers, academics, entrepreneurs and experts from across the globe, IF2020 is combining the traditional cultural aspects of a festival with high-level policy discussions focused on the Green Deal, digital transition, and Recovery Plan in order to discuss and present solutions to today’s societal challenges.

IF2020 will tackle a wide range of pressing topics including the European Green Deal and Green recovery, Circular Economy, Climate Pact, Farm to Fork Strategy, Industrial Strategy, Sustainable Trade, and more. To overcome these challenges, a combination of targeted policy measures and innovative real-world solutions will be essential.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a festival without music, art and culture! In addition to policy discussions on the most relevant current topics, there will be a range of interesting cultural activities in our virtual booths for you to discover at your own pace throughout the day. Local businesses and international startups will present their ideas for solutions aiming to change the way we think about the world, and you’ll even have the opportunity to grow your network after a long period of social distancing through our roulette networking sessions!

Stay tuned for the final lineup of speakers.
