We’ll gather people from across the globe: city mayors, policy-makers, business leaders, indigenous people, scientists, philanthropists, youth activists, and key influencers. People the world over, young and old. We’ll hear the boldest, wisest initiatives shared about what we can collectively do.
Participants will be attending, largely, by invitation but if you think you should be there, send us a note.
Here's what you can expect at the Summit.
The Countdown Summit takes place in Bergen, Norway at Grieg Hall (Grieghallen), named after the renowned composer who once called the city home. Its beautiful main theatre, foyer and vast spaces are the central hub of Countdown. The conference center boasts enough space and flexibility for large and small group conversations, deep-dive breakouts and more.
A city on Norway’s southwestern coast, Bergen is surrounded by mountains and fjords, including Sognefjord, the country’s longest and deepest fjord. Offering nature, culture and history, Bergen features colorful wooden houses on the old wharf, once a center of the Hanseatic League's trading empire. The Fløibanen Funicular goes up Fløyen Mountain for panoramic views and hiking trails.
