Cassee, Managing Director, HES Amsterdam School of Business: We are very glad to host you this year, but also in the years to come: Davos is the World Economic Forum and Amsterdam is the Summit for the Future!" Stefan Schneider, Chief International Economist, Head of Macro Trends, Deutsche Bank Research" The conference is very thought provoking especially since we have people here from so many diverse backgrounds - bringing their experience together - that really makes a very inspiring atmosphere." Prof. Vasco Garcia, University of the Azores, former Member of the EU Parliament: I think that the years to come will show us a tremendous progress and change in technology, in science, in the way the organizations are to relate themselves with the surrounding world. This is of extreme importance. Im really very pleased with the way the works [at the Summit] are going on." Katie Begg, Principal Lecturer, Institute of Energy & Sustainable Development, De Montfort University: This conference is absolutely perfect, because what its doing is implementing trans-disciplinarity and thats exactly what we need." Manfred Kern, Bayer CropScience: From the viewpoint of a person working for Bayer CropScience, it is satisfying and challenging that the Club of Amsterdam with its agenda and visions and the platform Summit for the Future" is closing a long lasting gap. There is now a center in the world for unconventional thinkers with courage and self-confidence, for interdisciplinary working groups pursuing common objectives, sharing common values, following the same rules, and enjoying a certain freedom of scope and even protected areas". A platform which needs people who possess the ability to communicate, who have a questioning culture, who are big enough to allow mistakes, who are willing to take risks, and who ultimately have confidence in a positive future."
