A webinar and workshop series by the lund institute for sustainability impact
In the transformation towards more sustainable organisations, sustainability issues have climbed high up on the agendas in both public and private sector. This transformation is indeed a challenge and calls for new mind-sets, business models, innovations and practices. Succeeding with this transformation is vital to solve the climate crisis and reduce social inequalities. We believe that joining forces, sharing ideas and innovations, as well as, starting new creative collaborations is the best way towards reaching the ambitious goals of e.g., Agenda 2030, EU Green Deal and The Sustainable Finance Platform.
Therefore, we launch Agenda: Sustainability – a webinar series where we invite actors from the private and public sphere to discuss with NGOs, authorities and researchers how to find efficient ways to succeed with the sustainability challenges we have high up on our agendas. Agenda: Sustainability is organised by Lund Institute for Sustainability Impact, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Southern Sweden, City of Lund and Region Skåne.
To further promote collaboration between different stakeholders, the plan is to open up registration, after each webinar, for a workshop related to each of the specific themes at focus during the webinars.
Note: The webinars will be held in Swedish.
