Because the world requires
a multidisciplinary approach


What is Cercle K2?


Since its creation, Cercle K2 has developed different networking and dialogue platforms

Created in 2013, by Kevin Dumoux, Jean-Michel Icard, le Général Jean-Pierre Meyer and Krys Pagani, Cercle K2 is a registered French not-for-profit organization, under the 1st of July 1901 law, and functioning with no public subsidy. It is a place for professionals coming from any background to network and discuss.

Cercle K2 has two faces:

  • It is a club dedicated to its Members with exclusive events only accessible to them: breakfasts, debates, lunches, visits, workshops, Parcours K2, Chemin K2, etc.
  • It is also a place to reflect on many topics with actions accessible to the public: videos, studies, working groups’ publications, Trophies K2, conferences, etc.

Today, Cercle K2 is a multidisciplinary (over 50 different professions are represented), intergenerational (Chemin K2, Parcours K2, etc.) and international association (See map below).

Cercle K2 is non partisan and is not intended to support a specific doctrine or person. It is a place to discuss where the speech must be free and plural.
General Jean-Pierre Meyer, President of Cercle K2, extract from his speech during the Trophies K2 ceremony, January 19, 2016

Cercle K2 is an international organization which gathers, among its members, over 30 nationalities. Its objective is to expand across the world to contribute to the spread of its multidisciplinary approach, which implies the mixing of ideas and cultures.
