The unprecedented scale of disruption brought by the COVID-19 crisis is a vivid reminder that business as usual is no longer viable. A few months ago, little did we know about the extent to which our economies and societies would be impacted. It is hard to predict the final impacts nor the speed of recovery towards the ‘new normal’.
Times like these demand bold leadership and action. For business, this is a pivotal moment to deploy all its critical know-how, network and resources to adapt to an ever-evolving context while planning for the next wave of disruption and keep working on sustainability in this new reality.
As we step up our efforts to support our members in responding to and learning from this crisis, we invite you to join our new virtual meeting series: Business as unusual, reshaping the present and future.
Over the months of April through July, these featured sessions will provide the opportunity to engage across a wide spectrum of relevant and strategic topics and participate in collaborative projects. Fully complimentary (except for the Circular Transition Indicators training), the events will highlight innovative and collaborative solutions to face current and future challenges.
Featured sessions take place every Monday and Wednesday at 10:00 – 11:30 CEST and are repeated in the afternoon at 16:00 – 17:30 to accommodate different time-zones.
All sessions are recorded and documentation is made available to participants following the event. See below for an overview of each session and access to the recording and documentation, but also for an overview of the upcoming sessions.
If you want a quick overview of all the featured sessions, please see this document.
Please refer to our monthly WBCSD calendar for a full overview of all our events, including Program and Project sessions.
