Towards Sustainability: what skills do future graduates need?



Copenhagen, Denmark

In reaction to climate change, the European Union has declared sustainability as a key priority for all member states. New regulations, goals and action plans are introduced aiming to significantly change our economy and stop global warming. Our panellists from C40 Cities, CBS PRME, United Nations Development Programme – UNDP, Flying Tiger Copenhagen and SAP, will bring their expertise in top management, policy-making and technology innovation. Together, we do not only want to reflect about the challenges to create more sustainable businesses but also understand what (new) skill-sets will be required from future graduates to contribute to this change.

You will have the unique opportunity to learn more about sustainable business and management and give your contribution to the oikos mission. Here’s how:

1⃣ Celebrate with oikos and join us at the inauguration of the oikos CBS Recycling Station

2⃣ Get your KeepCup from oikos Copenhagen and take a seat for the Panel debate

3⃣ Enjoy the debate about what skills do future graduates need to solve sustainability-related challenges

4⃣ Refresh with some Snacks & Drinks at the networking session

The oikos final event represents the end of a wonderful one-year journey which allowed a group of motivated and committed students to create a real impact by raising awareness about sustainable businesses and push Copenhagen Business School towards a concrete commitment in incorporating sustainability in its core values. The oikos Final Event will also be the start of a new journey, inspiring future oikos members and young leaders to build together a more sustainable future ?? ?.

PS: Please be aware that attendance of the event is on first-come first-serve basis, also regarding the goodie bags and keep cups that will be given out.
