Who will be coming?
This is the most important question, isn’t it? We expect around 100 bridgebuilders from around the world. Everyone who feels part of our Family is invited. This time, we invite you to bring your partners and kids. There will be family rooms available and we will organize a kids and partner program at EOS Allerheiligen. See the table below on the current registration status:
Some bridgebuilders need financial support in order to attend the Summit. During our last Summit, you feedbacked that we should invite more Community Heroes and that our family members would be willing to support this financially. Hence, we invite you to make a donation to support those who could otherwise not join us.
For those arriving on Thursday, we will start with a joint dinner in the evening. Most bridgebuilders will arrive on Friday afternoon or evening. In workshops, we will talk about our impact, ideas for improvements, new initiatives and our strategy. You may expect a colorful mix of workshops, outdoor activities and inspiring moments. The program is made by Bridgebuilders for Bridgebuilders so everyone is invited to contribute a topic. Take a look at our draft agenda and review our lessons learnt from the last Summit on Teamwork.
Based on the needs and preferences of our bridgebuilders, we have put together six workshops for the Summit. The workshops are prepared by bridgebuilders for bridgebuilders. Each workshop is joined by a member of the BOOKBRIDGE Team who will ensure the follow up on the decisions made.
