World Hope Forum Germany: A Virtual Symposium on the Future of Wellness

The demand for ways to deal with stress, both virtual and in real life, is at an all-time high. Thus, World Hope Forum Germany, curated by Ornamenta 2024 as WHF Ambassador for Germany, delves into the future of well-being. For centuries, Germany has embraced the concept of "Kur" (Spa), a holistic approach to healing that emphasizes spending time in nature, utilizing thermal waters and fresh air. While the privatization of the German spa industry in the nineties may have made these traditional experiences less accessible, different initiatives are breathing new life into this tradition.

Join Germany's inaugural World Hope Forum moderated from the iconic thermal baths of Bad Wildbad, where ten contributors will showcase how design, architecture, and craft draw inspiration from German heritage to create solutions for fatigue and isolation. The World Hope Forum is a virtual symposium that aims to unite major players who have pioneered new, more ethical industrial and economic processes, prioritizing people. Ornamenta 2024 collaborates with trend forecasters Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano, striving to establish a comprehensive global platform for exchanging knowledge and fostering innovation.
