Our events in Corona times: We have continued to offer our engaging and interactive events. As long as it is not safe to hold physical events, we are holding our events on Zoom.

“Ein grosses Danke für den super spannenden New Year’s Event! Die Auswahl der Speaker war hervorragend und die Organisation noch besser. Das war nicht nur meine beste Zoom Veranstaltung in diesem Jahr – sie sticht auch heraus von all den letztjährigen Erfahrungen!”

Thematic Events

Take a deep-dive into specific sustainability themes, and get to know interested and engaged stakeholders from across sectors. Hear short and inspiring inputs by diverse panels of experts from the business, foundation, NGO and public service world. And meet the GreenBuzz community.

Our thematic events are the perfect mix of networking and knowledge-sharing. We use innovative methods of networking, for example inspired by open-space formats. Learn more about a current sustainability topic and, at the same time, make new professional and personal connections!

Past themes have included biodiversity, buildings innovation, water, agriculture and supply chains, blockchain, sustainable finance, impact investing, food waste and more.

Informal Events

Join the community for informal drinks to combine knowledge exchange on sustainability topics with casual networking. Informal Drinks Events have a loose overall topic, such as plastic in the workplace, engagement of corporate partners or implementation of sustainability initiatives. They provide a space for brainstorming and making new connections.

Informal Drinks are held both online and in person.

Examples include informal drinks on the topics such as gender lens investing, pesticide-free agriculture, EU Action Plan and more.


Learn from experts on specific topics, using real world case studies, and dive deep into a given topic. Most of our workshops take between 2.5 to 4 hours and focus on soft skills.

Examples include workshops on the topics such as collaborative skills for knowledge economy, negotiation skills for sustainability, integrating sustainability into compensation and more.

Community Building Events

Join us for excursions and parties to strengthen our community and combine knowledge exchange on sustainability topics with fun and casual networking. The best example for a community building event is our annual summer party (see picture from 2019).

Examples include excursions to the Freitag Factory, the Beznau Nuclear Power Plant, the Linthal Pumped Water Energy Storage Facility, the Aletsch Glacier and of course our famous summer parties.

Impact Lunches
