Many people understand the need for a sustainable approach to business. Yet it can be difficult to imagine creating global prosperity and having a strong business community outside of the current model of economic growth.
This presentation will explore some of the inspiring possibilities and opportunities for businesses to thrive in a world that does not rely on the myth of inifinite economic growth.
Following the presentation, we will have a question and answer session where you can explore and question the ideas further and present your own thoughts on alternative futures. We'll be challenging you to identify potential business models that you could make work in this new world.
Stick around afterwards for networking opportunities and to meet other people exploring the options for business beyond economic growth.
