  • We are glad to announce that our world-class Distance Course "Introduction to Strategic Sustainable Development" has applications open. Now more than ever it seems essential that in our education and career we step up to understand the complexity of the sustainability challenge and that we find ways to concretely work on solutions, based on a solid, science-based approach. No matter the sector, region of the world, or stage of career in this journey, it seems that a capacity to handle complexity, create positive visions of the future, and work across sectors is a crucial competence to have.

    Our distance course has been built with the explicit aim to address these challenges and equip you with relevant knowledge and competence, for the sake of advancing society towards sustainability.

    Ta-dah! As promised in my last blog, Public Draft 1.0 of the Future-Fit Business Benchmark is now available for use and feedback. This free, open-source resource defines science-based, aspirational, sustainability goals for a company that desires to be fit for the future on a scarcer, more crowded, and hotter planet. We invite your feedback on the goals and your ideas on appropriate key performance indicators (KPIs) by which to assess progress toward each goal.
