We leave you with some highliths from today's sessions:
The role of sustainability at Nova SBE: "No one is left behind
The kick-off of a day full of conferences and debates on sustainability was given by Luís Veiga Martins, Associate Dean for Community Engagement & Sustainable Impact at Nova SBE. The head of the Sustainability area explained how the school is implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined by the United Nations in all Nova School of Business & Economics (Nova SBE) programs, from undergraduate to executive programs.
"Right now, [the SDGs] are part of our daily lives and the daily lives of companies. We, as a university, also have our role to play", explained Luís Veiga Martins, while presenting the Role to Play platform, built with the aim of creating a community dedicated to the development of talent and knowledge that can impact the world.
This mission of creating a positive impact also extends to the research done by knowledges centres of Nova SBE, which in turn can have a direct impact on public policies, helping to create a fairer and more sustainable society.
"We are working for our children and our grandchildren"
One of the best ways to find inspiration is to learn from the experiences of others. For this reason, it is not surprising that the session Just prove it: Real cases in Sustainable Development Businesses, promoted by Nova SBE Innovation Ecosystem, had no sits left to fill. In this session, nine company representatives told how their organisations have found innovative ways to contribute to a more sustainable future, in sectors as diverse as health, education, environment or agriculture.
