We continue our CSR & Sustainability meetups and we are excited to offer to all Sustainability & CSR advocates opportunities to expand their knowledge and play an active part in formulating the vision and consciously improving the sustainable behaviour of the region!

In our 1st event for 2016 we discuss and address the different career paths available in green and sustainability field.

Private companies, as well as the public sector, are more and more integrating sustainability issues in their actions and objectives.

  • How is it possible to take part to these strategic changes?
  • How to develop one’s career in green field?
  • How to begin a career in these fields, making the most of one’s past experiences?
  • How diverse is the sustainability field?
  • What opportunities are out there for Sustainability champions?
