New Thinking

for a New World

The Tällberg Foundation explores the issues that are challenging and changing our societies, with the goal of stimulating new thinking and discovering new solutions.

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.

Tällberg Workshops & Conversations

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.
