    Colleagues,

     

    Are you the Director of a Centre feeling the challenges of moving forward on the sustainability agenda? And is COVID-19 only adding to your challenges? If so, we encourage you to register for the Network for Business Sustainability Sustainability Centres Community Workshop on July 12-15, 2021, to be held virtually.

     

    This event brings together a powerful community of more than 170+ business school centres from across the world. The Workshop has been held every two years over the last decade – and just ask those who have previously attended to learn how much more progress they have made in their centre through their participation!

     

    The 2021 Workshop will focus on increasing impact and building collective wisdom. In addition to a day of multi-sectoral engagement, three days will examine how to improve sustainability centre research, teaching, outreach, and strategy.

     

    Registration is €100 and enables active engagement in all sessions. We are capping attendance at 200 individuals and ask that each centre have no more than 3 representatives.

     

    And, consider submitting a session . We already have some wonderful breakout sessions scheduled . However, we are re-opening the call for submissions through February 28.

     

    The Workshop is hosted by the Center for Sustainability Transformation and Responsibility (STaR) at the Vienna University of Economics and Business and the Institute for Business Ethics and Sustainable Strategy (IBES) at the FH Wien University of Applied Sciences for Management & Communication.

     

    Biennial SCC workshops provides a rare and important opportunity for business school sustainability/ responsibility centres to share common challenges and identify solutions. Outputs from the 2016 and 2018 workshops are available online.

     

    If your centre isn't already a member of the Sustainability Centres Community , do join.  It's free and fun. Questions? Contact info@nbs.net .

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Tima
