Launch of Copenhagen Sustainability Initiative (COSI)



CBS, KU and DTU are launching a Joint initiative called COSI which provides cross-disciplinary knowledge platforms that can inspire and foster sustainable societal innovation.

The Platform will be launched on November 28 at 15.30 at CBS, Room RS.20, (Råvarerbygningen, Porcelænshaven 22, 2000 Frederiksberg).

CBS Sustainability Platform, co-directed by Mette Morsing and Stefano Ponte have joined forces with the  Sustainability Science Centre led by Professor Katherine Richardson, University of Copenhagen (KU) and the Global Decision Support Initiative (GDSI) run by Professor Michael Zwicky Hauschild, Technical University of Denmark (DTU) to meet this demand. The result of this cooperation is the Copenhagen Sustainability Initiative (COSI), which endeavors to build a regional platform for sustainability in Copenhagen by establishing joint sustainability activities for research, education and outreach such as public-private partnerships and a joint certificate program in sustainability.
