If you run a research centre, want to do so, or know someone who does, I encourage you to join us or share this message for the 2021 Sustainability Centers Community (SCC) workshop. It features great community, connections, and learning experiences. The deadline to register is July 1, and we very much hope you will be there. (Register now.)
"Team Vienna" (our hosts) and NBS will lead us through an exercise of "designing the sustainability centre of the future." Design thinking and innovative thinkers (including futurist Stuart Candy) will move us to solutions. In addition, each day will also feature exciting breakouts led by members of the SCC.
For a taste of what you can get from an SCC workshop, check out a memory from our 2016 workshop: video of centre leaders sharing "What I wish I had known before starting a center." Unfiltered wisdom!
And, if you want to know about the breakout sessions, here's what's planned:

The workshop is July 12-15, 2021, and will be hosted on the online SCOOCS platform.
Each day's sessions apply design thinking principles to help you figure out how best to design a sustainability centre. Each day will involve a highly interactive workshop component and peer-led breakouts.
On July 12, a 'Multi-Sector Dialogue Day' will provide inspiration and seed the conversation. The day's theme is "Radical change vs. more of the same."
Registration is €100 and enables active engagement in all sessions.
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 connect business school sustainability/ responsibility centres to share common challenges and identify solutions. Outputs from the 2016 and 2018 workshops are available online.
