The Circle: inform and participate in the debate on our changing world

To create synergies, to share points of view and experiences and to give birth to actions, are the wills of the Circle.

1.618 gives the floor to the “New Heroes”: visionary entrepreneurs will share their experiences and unveil their projects and initiatives to the public. April 03: debates and exchanges dedicated to professionals (by invitation and in English). From April 04 to 06: two round tables per day on a defined theme, specific to the 1.618 universe. Entrepreneurs, scientists, academics, opinion leaders and creatives take the floor and participate in the debate. Between each round table, documentaries or artists’ films will be shown.
