Sustainability management is a shared problem that requires shared solutions. In fact, collaboration is at the heart of a resilient business model, and in order to reach a regenerative future we need to focus on collective impact and scaling market-driven sustainability solutions. Students will hear about how multiple stakeholders are working together to create solutions for problem materials, innovate more sustainable products and systems and advocate for local and international change.
