ImpactFest is all about accelerating solutions to build a more resilient and sustainable future. This year, we will focus on four critical themes in which our region needs immediate and effective solutions.

Water & Food securıty

We need sustainable, trustworthy, and affordable food and water supplies to meet the needs of a growing population. How might we ensure less food and water is lost, natural resources are conserved, biodiversity is strengthened and everyone has access to enough water and healthy food?

DISASTER Readıness

With unplanned urbanization, climate change, and environmental degradation a growing number of people and assets are at risk of being exposed to disasters. How might we strengthen the ability of national and local preparedness systems to respond earlier and better to disasters?

Youth & Future

A recent OECD survey revealed that “two in three 18-to-29-year-olds are worried about their household’s finances and overall social and economic well-being. How might we design and develop new support mechanisms that will provide youth with meaningful resources and better opportunities?

CLIMATE ınnovatıons

From renewables to nuclear and hydrogen alternatives to storage across advanced batteries and micro-grids and charging networks, how might we accelerate sustainable innovations to enable a transition to a net-zero economy?


Arkhé Innovate

Our mission is to build a high-impact innovation platform that enables scalable solutions to our region’s real problems.

We catalyze innovation in high-need areas including Food, Agriculture, Water, and Clean Energy by;

ImpactFest was an experience that healed me spiritually, alongside meeting wonderful people and acquiring great ideas. I left there by setting new goals in my career path and clarifying the answers to the questions waiting in my mind.



The fact that the participants of the program were inspired by common issues formed the basis for us to become a community from the first day. It was very valuable to exchange ideas with this diverse group, which consisted of different ages and fields.



Here, I witnessed the magic of ''circles'' again. I felt safe and was able to comfortably share my feelings and thoughts in the face of the problems experienced in the world and in our country. I left the camp with my hope that we can change something together, taking root and growing.
