Join us for the 10-Year Anniversary of r3.0 in this hybrid Conference setting.

About this event

r3.0 is pleased to announce its 9th international conference, convening from the 6th to the 7th of September 2022 in a hybrid setup (face-to-face in Amsterdam and online), after two fully online conferences in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 global restrictions. r3.0 has strategically placed its conference right after the summer break (in the Northern Hemisphere), to help set a sufficiently ambitious tone for the fall/winter conference season – particularly UN Climate Week, the UN General Assembly and many other conferences following in the months of September to December.

r3.0’s work is based around the r3.0 Work Ecosystem: a suite of 9 interlinked Blueprints, 8 already developed, and the final one, on Funding Governance for Systemic Transformation, to be released at the 2022 Conference. In 2022, r3.0 is also releasing additional Opinion Papers and Case Studies supporting its core mission. We have convened 8 prior r3.0 conferences; we host Academic Alliance and Advocation Partners networks; we also host Research and Test Lab collaborations, and we are making progress on our Global Thresholds & Allocations Council & Network plans. Finally, we are continuing to organise Transformation Journey Programs for those who want to activate transformation in their organizations and lives. We feel uniquely positioned to gather world-class “game-changing and mind-blowing” speakers in a highly interactive “sleeves-rolled-up” working conference setting. Given the stage of maturation r3.0 is reaching, this leads to two important pathways that are influencing the conference setup:

Making the r3.0 Work Ecosystem Work: In our content development phase, we focused on knowledge co- creation (with our global Working Groups), forging a strong foundation from which to now focus on dissemination and implementation. While we “keep our thinking caps on,” we’re also “getting down to business.” We at r3.0 stand prepared to shift further into advocation mode, asserting the necessity of aligning action in the fields we influence with the thermodynamic realities and ethical imperatives we identify in our Work Ecosystem. The time is ripe for r3.0 to shift its focus from knowledge generation to application and action. Based on our collaboration with UNRISD from 2018 onwards, piloting next-generation context-based indicators, we foresee more action-oriented advocation going forward in the transition from insufficient ESG tactics toward the creation of System Value, forming the core theme of this year’s conference: Transcending Incrementalism – From ESG to System Value Creation.

10 Years of r3.0: This 9th conference also marks the 10-year anniversary of r3.0, which started as an idea after the Rio+20 Summit in the light of the governments’ plea for a ‘regenerative & distributive economy’ and the obvious gap of tools to address this ideal. This anniversary also marks the finalization of the first generation of the r3.0 Work Ecosystem. The conference will look back at our first decade of impact, and look forward to what’s needed in the next 10 years, known to be the ‘decisive decade for humanity.’
