For years there has been talk, discussion and debate in politics, business and society. We believe it is high time that we finally took action. Nico Rosberg, Marco Voigt and Sven Krüger have created the GREENTECH FESTIVAL in order to accelerate the change towards more sustainability and to promote its implementation in our everyday lives.
Under the slogan ‘Celebrate Change’ the former Formula 1 world champion and the two entrepreneurs want to inspire an international audience with green technologies and show with fascinating exhibits and ideas how a positive change is possible today. Their message to all of us is to harness the potential of green technologies. In this way we can solve the enormous ecological challenges and at the same time create a better quality of life for everyone.

For years there has been talk, discussion and debate in politics, business and society. We believe it is high time that we finally took action. Nico Rosberg, Marco Voigt and Sven Krüger have created the GREENTECH FESTIVAL in order to accelerate the change towards more sustainability and to promote its implementation in our everyday lives.
Under the slogan ‘Celebrate Change’ the former Formula 1 world champion and the two entrepreneurs want to inspire an international audience with green technologies and show with fascinating exhibits and ideas how a positive change is possible today.

THE WORLD IS READY FOR A GREEN,
TECHNOLOGY-DRIVEN REVOLUTION.
THIS NEW MOVEMENT SPARKLES IN THE COLOURS
OF OUR FESTIVAL NEOGREEN.

Marco Voigt
Founder, GREENTECH FESTIVAL

THIS IS GONNA BE BIG
The founding trio is expecting over 50,000 guests from the 23rd to the 25th of May on the grounds of the former airport, Berlin-Tempelhof. What’s particularly nice is that besides the professional audience, the general public is also invited to check out the multifaceted programme. “The aim is to bring all the players together in one place. From start-ups to big players, from the environmental activist to the politician, from the researcher to the CEO and from the crown prince to the average consumer,” explains co-founder Marco Voigt. “Only together can we master the enormous global challenges of our time. With the GREENTECH FESTIVAL, we want to bring the immense potential of green technologies to life and inspire as many people as possible to embrace green change,” adds Nico Rosberg. Andreas Scheuer (CSU), Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure is the sponsor of the event. Norway, one of the top countries in terms of sustainability, is the partner country of the festival, which will be heading for other major international cities as early as 2020 – so the premiere in our German capital, Berlin is just the beginning.

THE SPECTRUM OF THE FESTIVAL IS ENORMOUS
From the largest exposition on green technology to date, the GREENTECH EXHIBITION powered by Allianz, to the GREEN LEADERS CONFERENCE, a conference featuring leading minds and high-calibre creators, to the presentation of the GREEN AWARDS; there have never been so many pioneers and companies from numerous countries and industries in one place at the same time. In addition to inspiring presentations by top speakers, including Byton CEO Dr. Carsten Breitfeld, Volocopter CEO Florian Reuter, Lilium CCO Remo Gerber, Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag and Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, concrete solutions for accelerating green change and deploying sustainable technologies will be presented and discussed in a series of collaborative sessions.
The GREENTECH FESTIVAL aims to reflect all fields of life and their green innovations. The festival dives into areas of mobility, energy, research and science, as well as the latest food trends, sustainable lifestyle products and even success stories from environmental activists, committed artists and VIPs. This versatility makes the event itself an innovation, following the theme of #celebratechange. The founders of the festival want to encourage a new, more positive attitude towards change and promote more enjoyment of sustainable technologies.

WE WANT TO BRING PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT
BACKGROUNDS TOGETHER, INSPIRE THEM
WITH GREEN TECHNOLOGY AND INFECT THEM
WITH OUR OPTIMISM.
TOGETHER, WE CAN CREATE A BETTER FUTURE.

Nico Rosberg
Founder, GREENTECH FESTIVAL

THE GREEN AWARDS – THE HEART OF THE FESTIVAL
The highlight of the festival will be the presentation of the GREEN AWARDS (formerly the GreenTec Awards). Their aim is to promote green projects, bring visionaries together and serve as catalysts for new ideas. With over ten years of expertise, the Awards are one of the world’s highest environmental distinctions and are presented to initiatives, start-ups, medium to large scale companies as well as to private individuals who are fiercely committed to a green lifestyle. Among the previous award winners are individuals such as Bob Geldof and Elon Musk, but also projects and companies such as Car2Go and Little Sun by Olafur Eliasson. Last year Nico Rosberg received the special award ‘Entrepreneur of the Year.’ He is committed to and involved in sustainable projects, especially in the field of mobility, and is an investor and shareholder in Formel E.

IN TODAY’S AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY,
IN PARTICULAR, THERE AREN’T JUST HIGH TECHNICAL
AND PERFORMANCE-DRIVEN DEMANDS. MANY COMPANIES HAVE LONG
BEEN FOLLOWING THE IMPORTANT SHIFT TOWARDS
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY TECHNOLOGIES. BUT THIS DEVELOPMENT
WILL ONLY BE SUCCESSFUL IF WE ALL SUPPORT IT –
THAT’S WHY I’M SO COMMITTED TO IT.

Nico Rosberg
Founder, GREENTECH FESTIVAL

FORMULA E, THE CROWD PULLER
As a partner of the GREENTECH FESTIVAL, Formula E will host this year’s E-Prix in Germany’s capital city on Saturday, the 25th of May at the festival grounds of Tempelhof. Formula E includes Allianz eVillage, which is expanding the GREENTECH EXHIBITION with many other displays of the future’s green technology, offering visitors the opportunity to experience the cars of the future up close. This is something you won’t want to miss.
GREEN WINDOW – AN OPEN WINDOW FOR A FRESH BREATH OF AIR
So what is our role in all of this? We are also part of the neo-green movement, and as a magazine and communication platform, we’re opening the green window for inspiration, innovation and engaging stories that will have a positive impact and influence our future. We act as the digital mouthpiece of the GREENTECH FESTIVAL and keep you up to date on all the latest news and events 365 days a year. We are definitely ready for the neo-green revolution. Are you?
