Silicon Valley: From Counterculture to Circular Economy

Please join Swissnex for an online conversation on technology, the counterculture and the circular economy with Fred Turner, Tino Go, and Faith Legendre.

Join us

In partnership with the School of Engineering and Management in the Canton of Vaud, Switzerland (HEIG-VD) and the University of Lausanne, Swissnex in San Francisco is hosting a virtual lecture on Monday, November 14, 2022.

We are looking forward to welcoming Fred Turner, Professor and serial author at Stanford University and expert in the emergence of counterculture in Silicon Valley, to this event. He will talk about how these social movements have influenced the way people in the San Francisco Bay Area think and behave.

To take the conversation further, we will welcome two additional keynote speakers who are experts in the topic of circular economy and its present and future innovations and developments. They will reflect on the content discussed and provide us with insights in their approaches towards achieving the concept of a circular economy in their work.

If you are interested in joining this event, please contact [email protected].
