Ekskäret Foundation grew out of a vision of financier and entrepreneur Thomas Björkman. Tomas wanted to create a platform that will inspire new kinds of meetings and conversations about life and society's major issues. The Foundation takes its name from the island Ekskäret in the Stockholm archipelago. The island has a meeting facility that was completed in 2011. The cornerstones of Ekskärets vision is a sustainable society, personal development and curious exploration. Our goal is to contribute to a change towards greater long-term sustainability, and we believe that we (and the world) can achieve this with the help of individuals who are curious, have an open mind and a willingness to evolve. Here you can read more about the island, the facility and the ideas behind its design.
