Q: What do we need for a sustainable future?

You? + your  impact?

Society? + its transformation?

Business? + change the way we do it?

A: Attend the events to find out!

Under the guiding theme of “Actions of Impact?! – Different perspectives on social impact”, ImpactLab, the Green Office and Academic Council invite you to a series of three events to find answers to the question: What do we need for a sustainable future? In the three events, we will set out different actions for impact on the individual and societal level. Can you ensure a sustainable future yourself by maximizing the social impact in your career? Or do we need society to transform? Can we change the way of doing business towards a more responsible and sustainable conduct?
