Therme Group partnered with global conference network DLD – Digital Life Design to host a Wellbeing Culture Forum talk on May 22 at DLD22 in Munich, bringing together visionaries from around the globe who are eager to change the world in an increasingly digital era through an interdisciplinary platform for exchange.

Hosted by cultural incubator Therme Art, the talk opened the last day of DLD22. Titled The Future of Wellbeing, the panel fell in line with this year’s DLD conference motto “Reality Rules!?” and invited experts across fields to assess poignant technological, economic, societal and ecological shifts present on a global scale.

The talk was initiated and moderated by Therme Group Vice President Mikolaj Sekutowicz, who introduced the talk’s panellist speakers, and reinstated the significance of bringing together experts across different fields as we continue to advance on our mission to provide collective wellbeing to the future of our cities.

Panellists included Social Entrepreneur Jeanne de Kroon, facilitating links between communities and businesses worldwide, Neuroscientist and Business Professor Moran Cerf, employing neuroscience methods in his research of human psychology, Climate Activist and Indigenous Rights Defender Nina Gualinga, endeavouring to reinstate indigenous knowledge into contemporary educational curricula, and Founder and Principal Architect of Counterspace Sumayya Vally, utilising her practice as a vehicle to creating spaces which are conducive to community engagement and belonging.

Founded in 2005 as an intimate gathering of friends, DLD (Digital – Life – Design) has developed into Europe’s leading innovation conference for visionaries from around the globe. Co-chairs Steffi Czerny and Yossi Vardi have created an interdisciplinary and internationally connected platform for people eager to change the world in the digital era, connecting the unexpected, presenting insights from business and politics, science and art. DLD aims to spark conversations that cross boundaries and bring participants together in a common search for answers to the most challenging questions that arise through digital change.
