About the Summit

Berlin, Europe’s Startup Capital, hosted GBAS 2021. Preparations for the event fell in the darkest times of a historic Pandemic and anthropology’s tools and lenses have been put severely to the test. The uncertainty of the times became an important tool and opportunity for GBAS to test digital co-working among anthropologists and businesses as partners, a precedent for new ways of collaborating that can reach global audiences. The 2021 theme addressed challenges of sustainability, from foresight and future studies to the human face of taxation, to black researchers in business, to businesses’ internal shifts, to anthropology’s roles in future-proofing business, to the very limits of human centricity.
