About the Foundation

The Tällberg Foundation is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit educational organization with offices in Stockholm, Sweden and New York, U.S.A. For more than thirty years, the Foundation has encouraged a global conversation about issues that are critical to the evolution of our societies. We operate under an umbrella of intellectual freedom and through an open-ended learning approach that is unrestricted by special interests, political correctness or the boundaries of cultures and disciplines.

The Tällberg Foundation, founded in 1981 in the village of Tällberg, Sweden by Bo Ekman, is devoted to exploring the changes that are driving our societies and our planet through open-ended, value-based conversations among our growing, global network. The Foundation is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit educational organization with its principal office in Stockholm, Sweden.

Over the last decade, the Tällberg Foundation has organized programs and activities in Sweden and around the world. Workshops and conversations have been convened in Stockholm, Kigali, London, Brussels, Alexandria, New York City, Washington DC, Cape Town, Moscow, Beijing, and Berlin, among many others. We have also conducted learning journeys for groups of leaders to Greenland’s ice sheet and Ecuador’s jungle as well as to Silicon Valley and elsewhere.

Indeed, since 2005, we have convened more than 90 events involving roughly 8,000 participants.

Central to the Tällberg Foundation’s broad appeal and longevity is that we are deeply committed to intellectual freedom and a learning approach unrestricted by the constraints of special interests or political correctness.
