Greentech Festival 2020
We took part in the festival to be a part of the future.
We need to inspire and captivate as many people as possible.
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.”
Polestar at the Met Gala
Few things occupy the space where design, art, and innovation meet as naturally as fashion. The runway is a known environment for true experimentation, showcasing new techniques, materials, and design philosophies to audiences eager to see what’s next and what’s still in the realm of fantasy. The Met Gala, colloquially known as “fashion’s big night out”, is where the who’s who of this world congregate. And to meet up at this meeting of minds, participants took another thing that’s perfectly at home in the middle of the Venn diagram of design, art, and innovation: Polestar 2.
All aboard: the Polestar referral programme
Enthusiasm is contagious. Upon discovering a new hobby, restaurant, or band that you cannot get enough of, the urge to spread the word to friends and family is never far behind. After all, sharing is caring. The path towards greater electric mobility is indeed a journey of shared excitement. And we know that getting behind the wheel of an EV can have the same impact. Which is why we’re launching the Polestar referral programme.
