We are continuously working to stimulate and support a sustainable transition in Danish businesses towards greener and more equitable solutions and business models, and we are actively working to connect passionate people around key topics. One of our efforts in this context is to establish forums where dialogues, networks and solutions are created.
WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE?
With the slogan “Connecting Today with Tomorrow” we have launched the ACADEMY project through our partnership with Oikos Copenhagen at CBS with the goal to connect and inspire students and business leaders around topics related to sustainability in management and economics.
During the ACADEMY, we will follow a specific topic each semester, bringing students and business leaders together through events such as high quality interactive lectures, discussion groups and workshops.
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?
The idea is to provide a forum for sustainable conversations and a starting point for innovative solutions and co-creation. We invite our participants to view this as an opportunity to interact and link with practitioners from different backgrounds and starting points.
To best enable this, we believe that an approach based on crowdsourced and cross-sector collaboration between those who partake in knowledge sharing is the best way forward.
WHAT WILL YOU END UP WITH?
With ACADEMY, we at CSR Forum wish to connect our members not only with the amazing pool of dedicated knowledge at CBS, but also with your colleagues from across sectors and businesses, while at the same time opening up forums for discussions which are high in quality and experimentation.
The ambition is that we every semester will end our ACADEMY by gathering the inputs from the different sessions and create a white paper showcasing the collaborations and the synthesized knowledge.
As a result of the lectures and workshops, you will also have broadened your network and your knowledge of the topic at hand. In addition, you will have had a chance to test the future sustainability leaders of tomorrow and create collaborations where this makes sense to you.
WHAT CAN YOU LOOK OUT FOR?
The topic for our current semester is Sustainable Supply Chain Management. Read more about the ACADEMY events for this semester here.
The ACADEMY will also return next semester with another topic.
