In this online short course programme, we will cover shifting global and national social and environmental megatrends to make sense of sustainability discourses over recent years and to understand why and how businesses are responding.

We will explore:
• How leading companies are moving beyond shared value to make clear commitments to operate within planetary boundaries and social foundations
• Practical frameworks, real-time case studies and tools for embedding sustainability into your organisational strategy, culture and decision-making

Key processes will include:
• How to prioritise, set strategy and goals
• How to set governance practices
• Narrative and storytelling
• Partnering for community resilience

We invite you to join this dynamic, practice-oriented short course!
