Region Skåne and real estate developer Atrium Ljungberg met at The Bridge Summit in 2019 and, through the workshops joined forces to address early detection of kidney-related lifestyle diseases. After pandemic delays the pilot finally took place in 2022 where 100+ middle-aged men with “fear-of-finding-out” checked their blood pressure during an everyday visit to the mall. For each person that could be encouraged to change their habits and thereby escape advanced kidney care (and suffering), Region Skåne estimates a saving of EUR 50k per year per person. 25% of the tested persons were diagnosed with an increased risk.

Altitude Academy

How do we help create a better society? We believe there are a few ground pillars. By creating new forums for exchanging thoughts on democracy and getting the right people together we enhance the odds of solving great challenges. We can try and affect people in power – and we can help the younger generation get strong and confident enough to become the leaders of tomorrow. One way of doing this is by giving them the right tools which we do in Altitude Academy. The leadership training is free of charge and there are monthly sessions for one year.
