Big Questions Little Time - Webinars on Sustainable Development
"Big Questions Little Time - Webinars on Sustainable Development"
The two MSC centres Centre for Business and Development Studies (CBDS) and CBS Sustainability are the driving force behind the new webinar series "Big Questions Little Time - Webinars on Sustainable Development". This webinar series brings in international thought leaders, representing a wide variety of fields and disciplines. Following the same structure for each seminar, we wish to critically explore if, how, and under which conditions any given approach can bring about change and contribute to sustainable development.
The title of this webinar series refers not only to the inherent urgency for us to find possible solutions to the societal challenges we are facing, but also the 60 minute time frame for each session. Webinars are held six times a year at 14.00 - 15.00 (CET), usually on the last Thursday of the month in question.
On this site, you can find the audio and video podcasts of the sessions. If you wish to stay in the loop and attend the live sessions, please sign up for the monthly CBS Sustainability newsletter or contact centre manager Sarah Netter, email@example.com
