The objective of this year’s ONE Plenary is to have a debate on what the most recent political developments mean for our field of Organizations and the Natural Environment.
The environmental agenda is under severe pressure. While most attention goes to the US as the new Administration seems to be dismantling the EPA and takes a sceptical position on man-made climate change, other countries are not paying much attention to the environment either. The rise of populism and disputes about immigration are diverting attention from climate change in Europe, for example, while emerging economies like China and India still seem to choose development over the environment. The uplifting feeling that people felt after the Paris Agreement on climate change seems to have subsided.
The question that will be addressed in the ONE Plenary is what the current political situation means for us as management scholars. How should we change what we do so that we have more impact on the green agendas of our respective countries and businesses? The format will be an open debate with all people present to discuss the issue after the following prominent scholars in our field have given brief opening statements:
Susan E. Jackson; Rutgers University
Thomas P. Lyon; University of Michigan
Sally V. Russell; University of Leeds
Gail Whiteman; Lancaster University Management School
Maurizio Zollo; Bocconi University
Andrew J. Hoffman; University of Michigan
Martina K. Linnenluecke; University of Queensland
Chair: Jonatan Pinkse; The University of Manchester
