Open Lecture: Planning for a Sustainable Future - Wednesday 1st October 2014 - 9am - 12pm - Location: Council Chamber, Wilfred Brown Building

Full Event Details:

Can any organisation, in any context, be environmentally and socially responsible while being economically viable and competitive? Can sustainability principles be used as a competitive tool in business? What guidelines are there for being strategic in the transition to sustainability? In this exciting and thought provoking lecture, Professor Robèrt (founder of the Natural Step, and Blue Planet award winner) will describe a 25 year peer-reviewed process, aimed at designing a unifying framework for sustainable development; merging the seemingly unmergeable - ethics with money, small with big, and short term with long term. Now is the time to rethink, redesign and build a positive future. Dr Karl-Henrik Robèrt is a guest Professor within the Sustainability Assessments Group at the Blekinge Institute of Technology (Sweden). In 1999 Dr. Robèrt received the Green Cross Millennium Award for International Environmental Leadership and in 2000 he received the Blue Planet Prize. In 2005, he was named the inaugural winner of the prestigious global award The Social Responsibility Laureate Medal. Dr. Robèrt is a guest lecturer on Brunel’s new Masters programme in Sustainability, Entepreneurship and Design, launched in 2013. Do hope you can join us for the this interesting presentation! The lecture is free with refreshments available on arrival.
