Entrepreneurialism and Sustainability
In today’s fast-paced world, the challenges for a sustainable world are constantly evolving as we search for new ideas and advancements. But where do these ideas come from, and how do we address these issues in the local and global scales? They come from us by engaging in our entrepreneurial thinking, being creative in finding innovative solutions, taking initiative, exchanging knowledge across disciplines and with a variety of stakeholders, being resourceful, and learning from experience.
Join our panel of experts for a roundtable discussion that investigates how we can apply entrepreneurial thinking to the sustainability issues that we will face over the next 20 years in Calgary and beyond. Our speakers will explore ways to find innovative solutions for social and environmental concerns by engaging entrepreneurial thinking. They will share their experience in being creative and resourceful, taking initiative, exchanging knowledge across disciplines with a variety of stakeholders and learning from experience.
If you’re interested in becoming a sustainability change agent and thinking outside of the box to address real world challenges we’re facing, this event is for you.
