“Sustainability in Times of Change”
Thursday April 8, 9:00-17:30h
How have sustainability efforts been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic? Have there been opportunities for change? And what can we learn from these unusual times?
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected multiple sectors and facets of society over the past year, and we wish to delve deeper into whether this shift in dynamic could prove to be a catalyst for fundamental change, or whether it has rather inhibited sustainability efforts.
This year’s online edition of the RSM STAR Sustainability Forum, with the theme of “Sustainability in Times of Change” aims to provide a platform for critical dialogue regarding current efforts towards change, and the necessary steps needed to prioritise sustainability in the future.
The Forum will start with inspiring speeches from key-note speakers on topics relating to sustainability and the pandemic, followed by a critical panel discussion with professionals representing companies from various sectors and different levels of sustainability. Hereafter, the KPMG-RSM Sustainability Master Thesis Award will be presented, and there will be an audience choice award for the most creative video presentation of the nominees. Workshops will follow in the afternoon, during which smaller groups of students will work with companies to potentially solve issues on sustainability. The day will end with a networking session to allow students and the companies attending the workshops to interact more informally, answer questions and perhaps foster internship or working opportunities for the future.
