We took part in the festival to be a part of the future.
First conceived in October 2018, Greentech Festival is an annual event bringing together innovators, politicians, thought leaders, and all those who have an interest in creating a greener, more sustainable future.
Founded by sustainability entrepreneur and Formula 1 champion Nico Rosberg, along with engineers Sven Krüger and Marco Voight, Greentech is “the global stage for green innovations”. Where a keynote from Google/Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai can be followed by a performance from Mercury Prize nominee Nick Mulvey. Where actor and climate advocate Robert Redford shares the (virtual) stage with President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen. And where the latest from the cutting edge of green technology (like, for example, a Polestar 2) is on display.
“It’s about time that we finally bring together all those who can make moves in green technology: start-ups and corporations, environmental activists and politicians, researchers and CEOs, crown princes and completely average consumers,” states Voight.
An event like this is tailor-made for Polestar. Our values of greater sustainability, green innovation, and a commitment to a more electrified future are not only points on an agenda; they’re the primary goals for Greentech’s attendees and partners, those best equipped to enact real change.
“That’s the only way to bring the enormous potential of green technologies to life,” says Rosberg. “We need to inspire and captivate as many people as possible.”
The Polestar Design Contest features a truly expert jury. Polestar Head of Design Maximilian Missoni, Senior Design Manager Juan Pablo Bernal and Car Design Research Director Sam Livingstone are the ones who will evaluate every submission, pore over every detail, and ultimately determine the winners of the contest.
In May of 2021, Sydney’s Paramount House Hotel was the site of an unlikely assembly: a robotics engineer-turned-experimental musician, a surfboard shaper, an indigenous culture advocate, an electric performance car brand, and a host of other artists, creatives, and brands.
