Chora Connection invites you to its open mind forum, ’AMB17ION – Making the UN Sustainable Development Goals a Danish Reality’, taking place on 1st December 2016, 9:00 to 21:00, at Amagnetiseringsstationen, Teaterøen in Copenhagen.

On December 1st, Chora Connection’s Board will be bringing together 100 practitioners, pioneers, artists, researchers and change agents from Denmark and internationally, for a formidable 12 hour motivational forum on creating a sustainable and resilient Denmark.

Join in the discussion on how to make the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) a Danish reality, alongside:
Mogens Lykketoft, Katherine Richardson, Martin Lidegaard, Sister Jayanti, Steen Hildebrandt, Mette Touborg, Richard Olivier, Trine Krebs, Carla Cammilla Hjort, Claus Stig Pedersen, Thomas Roland, Rikke Krause, Claus Skytte, Michael Hauschild, Karen Blincoe, Niels Elers Koch,
Camilla Bjerre, Ole Fogh Kirkeby, Birgitte Escherich amongst others.

The event takes place at Afmagnetiseringsstationen ved Teaterøen on Refshaleøen, in a scene set by the scenographer Dorte Holbek and food artist Mette Martinussen. You will be engaged in intense, thought-provoking experiences together with people who can change the way you think about society, and your own role within it. Together we will establish partnerships, develop prototypes and affect change across sectors, borders, values and disciplines.

6 seminars:

In the run-up to AMB17ION, Chora Connection held 6 seminars each on a specific theme: LEARN, BE, MAKE, LIVE, EAT and GROW. Conclusions from the seminars will be used as the starting point for discussion at AMB17ION on December 1st.

The day’s programme will consist of a combination of inspiring presentations, intensive workshops and stimulating experiences. As a participant, we expect you to be engaged, contribute opinions, come with an open and compassionate mind, as well as believe that the best way forward is to share and focus on possibilities rather than barriers.


AMB17ION is for all change leaders, pioneers, inspiring individuals, decision-makers, practitioners and researchers, who feel responsible for creating a sustainable Denmark in light of the 17 SDGs. AMB17ION is a meeting place and a development platform, a knowledge bank and experience, a common place – a place where we don’t only think big, but act big!
