NBS Sustainability Centres 2020 Workshop


Save the date for the fifth biennial workshop for leaders of sustainability research centres, June 24-26, 2020, in Vienna, Austria.

This workshop provides a rare and important opportunity for leaders of business school sustainability/ responsibility centres to share common challenges and identify solutions. The NBS Sustainability Centres Community connects more than 150 business schools worldwide, and our last four workshops have generated very positive outcomes.

The call for sessions for the 2020 workshop is now open. The call for submissions will be open through November 30. General workshop registration will open in January 2020.

The goal for this workshop is to leverage the community’s collective wisdom. The SCC has evolved into a thriving community, generous in sharing insights and forging collaborations.

This workshop is co-hosted by the Vienna University of Economics and Business and FHWien University of Applied Sciences for Management & Communication. We program two days on centre-related impact and one day of multi-sectoral engagement. There will be significant peer-to-peer learning and sharing, as well as some talks by topic experts.

Note that the workshop is the week before EGOS, which may help with consolidating travel.

If your centre is not already a member of the Sustainability Centres Community, please join. It’s free, and we can do much more by learning from each other and building community than by working alone.

We look forward to seeing you next June.
