Join us for an interactive dialogue featuring thought leaders from academia, the private sector, and the civil society, to discuss challenges and opportunities for a transformation towards sustainability.

The hosts of this event are the Institute for Business Ethics and Sustainable Strategy (IBES) at the University of Applied Sciences for Management & Communication and the Center for Sustainability Transformation and Responsibility (STaR) at the Vienna University of Economics and Business. We organize this event with a strong sense of urgency and shared purpose, in the light of the fact that 2021 marks less than ten years until the deadline to fulfil the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
