Basecamp Quest 2020

How can business leaders tackle climate change?

Future Stewards

18 - 20 January 2020

Many business leaders want to step up on climate change. The question is: how?

We're bringing together a select group of C-suite peers to focus on making an impact.

Over an intense 42-hour programme in the Swiss Alps, immediately prior to WEF 2020, we’ll:

  • Understand from top scientists the state of play and likely trajectory of climate change.
  • Map the key shifts that businesses need to make.
  • Learn from companies that are transforming their sectors.
  • Consider how to mobilise critical stakeholders.
  • Tap into hope, creativity and ambition and explore our personal motivation as leaders.

Who is this programme for?

Our programme is for CEOs, C-suite leaders and board directors from global companies who want to address climate change. It is open to both leaders are already taking action, and those who want to engage but aren't yet clear how. 

All participants will be en route to the WEF Davos meeting. We aim to equip participants with a new level of knowledge, inspiration and courage to influence the wider discussions at Davos.

The spirit of the gathering will be open, trusting, and confidential. This is a chance to frankly discuss the challenges, expand our sense of what’s possible – and leave with a shared clarity and commitment to further action.

Who are the organisers?

The programme will be organised and facilitated by Future Stewards and Arctic Basecamp.

Future Stewards is a movement for change founded by Leaders’ Quest (LQ), Global Optimism and the We Mean Business coalition. The programme will be facilitated by LQ, a social enterprise with 18 years of experience creating transformative immersive experiences.

Arctic Basecamp engages scientists, global business leaders, policymakers, innovators and disruptors about the canary in the coalmine of global risk -- the Arctic. It is run at Davos each January by Lancaster University's Pentland Centre for Sustainability and Business.
