Redefining Sustainable Business: A Futures-Thinking Design Sprint

October 25, 2017, 10:15 am-11:15 am

Climate change impacts, disruptive new business models, the combinatorial technology explosion, and a fraying social contract are just some of the changes profoundly reshaping the landscape for business and sustainability. In the face of such rapid and complex change, futures thinking offers a powerful tool to challenge current assumptions and create more resilient strategies. This highly interactive futures session will have participants explore the implications of some of the most disruptive trends while imagining how companies might turn sustainability challenges into business opportunities.
