Sustainable Futures Lab
This event is for BSR members only. Members, please log in to register.
Is your company resilient enough to withstand whatever comes at it over the rest of the Turbulent Twenties? How can your business grow its positive impact on society and the environment while navigating the uncertainty ahead?
As recent years have shown, the world can change in an instant. Artificial intelligence, climate change, and sweeping regulatory shifts are just some of the forces creating rapid disruption for business.
Business success—and the well-being of people and the planet—will depend on strategies that are resilient to the profound changes underway and imagine new opportunities to create a more just and sustainable world.
Join the BSR team of sustainability professionals as we put on our silent disco headsets and immerse ourselves in three different scenarios that challenge our assumptions about what the future may hold and allow us to wind tunnel ideas to create a better future.
This event is by invitation only to BSR members and partners. Please register to receive confirmation and event location details (space, err, headsets, are limited so be sure to register in advance). Dancing during the session is encouraged but entirely optional!
