Purpose of the Sustainability Practitioner Programme
This seminar is designed for managers in organisations from the private or public sector to equip them with a high-level understanding of sustainability. Sustainability is no longer simply a bolt-on to a ‘business-as-usual’ approach, but is something that must become deeply embedded in the day-to-day operations of an organisation.
The seminar will give participants exposure to the critical social and environmental pressures, assessing their impact on organisations, developing systems for responding creatively to them, and how to integrate these systems into their organisation’s operations and strategy. The participants will deepen their thinking with peers and will leave feeling empowered to convey to their executive/line managers the business logic of placing sustainability at the core of strategy.
Process adopted to ensure maximum learning
There will be exposure to cutting-edge thinking and practice from the faculty and guest contributors.
Delegates will also spend valuable time in small group discussions, where they will start to shape and refine their own strategy and sphere of influence for when they return to their organisation.
Each delegate will be allocated to a syndicate group for the duration of the workshop. This syndicate group is facilitated by a member of faculty and is a place where focused reflection on the ideas that emerge in the workshop can take place.
