This day will be a chance to listen to and interact with large, medium and small companies and entrepreneurs. Participants will have a chance to work on real business cases and offer their solutions.
🔵 Change in the Classroom
The last day will make the connection between major sustainability challenges of our time and what is taught in economics and management degrees.
The importance of sustainable development is constantly upgrowing all around the world. Nowadays, each country tries to disclose Sustainable Development Goals by encouraging the population for action.
The main subject of the Davos Economic Forum has been sustainable development for the last several years, which shows the importance of sustainability for governments, businesses, and society in sum.
Besides the importance of the topic, there are many social, environmental, and economical challenges in the world. Our planet is already beyond the boundaries imposed by the environment, that for one’s part is depicted in climate change.
In such circumstances, action from government, business, and society is the most vital for me, for you and for us. The scientific community has the power to suggest innovative ideas and solutions to the government and business.
2020 is the year of rethinking and reconsidering many things, it is time for big and small institutes to upgrade their actions through more sustainable ways.
