And she will deliver a FORMWELT oriented realistic vision of systemic education and how this will change humankinds ability to manage metacrises fundamentally.

Hans Kluge, Germany“I probably don’t know the solution, though I admire the problem.” – Hans Kluge is creative nerd, agile project manager and systemic coach. With his leading question on “how to make work prettier” he is questioning organisational structures and preceding traditions. As a generalist he’s thinking beyond, tries out and enables in the given context.After a standard business administration study and the according career-driven track through corporations and agencies the dissonance between the how we work and what we do grew. Starting a journey to find the more and future fitting solutions he stumbled uponnew work, agile methods, systems theory, systemic coaching, and other mindset bricks assembling an overall image. The guiding principle “I probably don’t know, let us find that out together” accompanied Hans to work freelance.As a multidimensional bridge builder between tradition and future he is dedicated to project management with integrated coaching. In the scope of graphic and web/IT he provides creative eruptions and solutions outside the box.Moderating and facilitating parts of the Larnaca Conference is an exciting trip in Hans’ journey for finding new future fitting solutions – leastwise knowing how to create them.
