About this Event

Boma New Zealand welcomes you to attend a free live viewing party of the inaugural Boma Momentum Summit taking place in Paris, France. Join us for delicious breakfast from Bacon Brothers and 3 hours of talks and debates as we kick off a new decade dedicated to postitive action.

Though this century is still young, we have witnessed a wave of cultural disruptions that now greatly threaten our future — and are only gaining momentum.

Over the past two decades, we’ve watched the digital revolution divide us in ways we never imagined; we’ve seen the progress made on environmental sustainability reversed by greedy special interests; and we’ve witnessed unprecedented polarization and inequality spread across the globe.

However, a new decade is beginning—and with it a new opportunity to take action. Our community has long fought to tame these disruptions and to make our technology and our economies work for the common good.

This new decade now impels us to rethink our way of understanding the world and to better grasp its complexity.

We need to believe in our creativity, our capacity for resilience, and our power to spark real change at both the individual and collective levels. Above all, we need to build a new kind of momentum — one that not only counteracts the disruptions we face, but also builds a sustainable world and a better future for all of us.

Boma is the community that brings together optimistic, resolutely committed and active people to rethinking the world. Institutions, corporations, citizens, all are invited to join the movement.

Why should you attend?

  • To understand the current and future changes in our world.
  • To meet those who are committed to our future and move the dials.
