Elevated Expectations for Hub Culture Davos 2017
2nd Jan 2017
The ICEhouse, (situated above the main Pavilion at Promenade 93) was a new addition to the Hub Culture Davos Pavilion in 2016 and will be returning to help facilitate discussions around the Future of Innovation for the Circular Economy, along with the theme of this year's World Economic Forum Annual Meeting - Responsive and Responsible Leadership.
Created by McDonough Innovation and SABIC, the building has been designed to demonstrate the positive design framework described in the book Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things, the sustainable development goals of the United Nations, and the reuse of resources implicit in the circular economy. Read more on the creation and vision of the ICEhouse here.
The Davos experience is made possible with visionary partners. For the ICEhouse, this visionary partnership includes SAP, Johnson&Johnson, Palo Alto Networks and Cognizant, the premier ICEhouse partners who make the building possible with SABIC and McDonough Innovation.
Together with the Supporting Partners, Digital Globe, Edelman, Innovate Finance, Intuit, MIT, Nielsen, Renault Nissan Alliance, Hub Culture is able to offer services with a central place for collaboration during this important week.
Executive Chef Freddy Money will be returning to create some seriously delicious food in the roving Kaskäad Kitchen. Vegetarian and vegan dishes are a real focus this year, alongside a waste to food initiative with the Rockefeller Foundation.
