     Network for Business Sustainability Sustainability Centres Community Workshop

     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. Register here: https://www.nbs-scc2021.com/

     This event brings together a powerful community of 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 “Designing the Business Sustainability Centre of the Future”. Drawing from a day of multi-sectoral engagement, centre leaders will work collectively toward not just reacting to a new normal, but proactively leading their business schools in shaping it.

     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 2 representatives. 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?
