About Alternative Prosperity OPEN


Alternative Prosperity OPEN (AP OPEN) is a multi-stakeholder forum for unpacking complex issues and new opportunities. We bring together leaders and change agents to work collectively and in innovative ways. The contributors, participants, location and arrangement of the day(s) are selected with care to encourage optimal connection to genuineness in an inspiring, honest and collaborative space.

We chose the term OPEN as it represents potential and inclusiveness. It is however also a term that refers to an attitude. An attitude that values diversity, different points of view and multiple levels of intelligence1 . All of which is required to deal with complexity. In our process, we however aim to be pragmatic, doing-focused and not to over complicate unnecessarily.

1. We work with IQ; Emotional Intelligence (EQ); Spiritual Intelligence (SQ) and Ecological Intelligence.
