A 3 Day Journey

Day 1 – Wed, 16 October – INSPIRATION

At the iconic venue ‘Cirkus’ in Stockholm, expect TED-Style talks, intimate conversations, art performances and participatory experiences centered around real-life stories on how inner skills can boost outer impact.

From trailblazers in adult development, business, leadership, sustainability, policy development & the arts, our speakers bring their experience, expertise and a fierce commitment to their own inner journey.

Enjoy plenty of space in between for more magic to happen as you connect, digest and embody the IDG skills across our five dimension spaces: Being, Thinking, Relating, Collaborating, and Acting.

Day 2 – Thurs, 17 October – DEEP DIVES

Tailor your Summit experience and choose from five dynamic tracks that align with your interests or expertise. From integrating inner development across business and education to AI and global collaboration, there’s something for everyone.

Convene with others from your field or seek a new perspective in these interactive workshops, debates, and discussions aimed at transforming the way you live and lead. Gain practical tools to reimagine the playbook on sustainable and systemic change.

Resurface together in the evening for the official closing dinner and a chance to exchange insights. Then brace yourself for an epic party to round off the Summit in style, leaving you inspired, connected and energised for the exciting possibilities ahead.

Day 3 – Fri, 18 October – INTEGRATION

Unwind in this optional open space in between the Summit and your return home for a chance to mingle, integrate & co-create with fellow participants, speakers and artists.

Finish up conversations, plan a session, take a walk, join the unconference or embrace this free space for whatever wants to emerge.

Savour and extend the magic of the Summit, embracing the opportunity to deepen our connections and nurture the seeds of inspiration that were planted.

The Digital Experience

For our digital community, log into the IDG Summit platform to absorb the buzzing energy and transformative insights through our live stream experience. Connect with each other through the chat or host/take part in a local watch party organised by our 500+ global Hubs to bring the IDG experience to your town or city.


5 Dimension Spaces


Embrace the tranquil spaces in between: Unplug from the intensity of the Summit and step into a serene haven where tranquility and personal growth intertwine. Get comfortable on one of the cushions and immerse yourself in soft lighting and meditative melodies, allowing our speakers to guide you through transformative meditation sessions. 


Explore the space in between questions and answers: Spend time in this vibrant space where collective intelligence and meaningful dialogue flourish. Engage in discussions sparked by the stories of our speakers, browse through a selection of insightful reads or contemplate the nuances of inner development within the context of global challenges. 


Bridge the space in between each other: Whether you attend the summit with colleagues, friends, or, by yourself, this space is crafted to forge new connections and explore our shared humanity. Step into a space of genuine connection, empathy, and compassion with facilitated exercises that deepen self-awareness and explore the delicate art of relating.


Navigate the spaces between challenges and solutions: This co-creative space is designated to encourage connection and cross-pollination around community-sourced projects. Whether you’re exploring potential collaborations, launching new initiatives, or working on innovative solutions, the IDG Garden provides the perfect platform. 


Move across the space in between understanding and embodiment: As you go from your head into your body, discover the transformative power of movement and the arts. Be guided through yoga, dance, and embodiment exercises, creating a space for (re)discovering courage, optimism, and the perseverance needed for your journey towards global impact.
