The Tällberg Foundation explores pressing societal issues. Today, we face profound challenges as our familiar world undergoes rapid and potentially dystopian transformations. However, there are still forces for good that require revitalization. This is why the Foundation is laser-focused on leadership. Great leaders can bend the arc of history.

We made it; we broke it; we can fix it.

We live in a world where facts are everywhere, recorded and shared ubiquitously. That ought to make this an era where arguments, journalism, and politics are routinely rooted in fact; unfortunately, it is more a world where too many people insist not only their own...

Working Across Borders

and Across Disciplines

If we are imaginative enough to make new connections, to see new pathways, or to look at the familiar from different perspectives, then the Tällberg Foundation conversations will have lasting value. And even better if they inspire new action.

Our Initiatives


We aim to contribute to the new thinking —and new acting— required by this moment in history.

Tällberg’s work program focuses on understanding how to re-inject ethics into leadership; re-establish the legitimacy of governance; and manage, instead of being managed by, disruptive technologies, climate change, mass migration and other phenomena. We seek new thinking for a new world.

Workshops and Webinars

Tällberg conversations aim to provoke “New Thinking” in part by convening people who are deeply knowledgeable as well as people who are deeply curious, all of whom are more concerned with finding new insights than with reinforcing conventional wisdom.
