[MINICONFERENCE] SUSTAINABLE LIFE DESIGN ACROSS GENERATIONS  

How can juniors & seniors take sustainable action in their (work)life? 

Sustainable development is about passing on a better planet to future generations – but what about the current ones? And (how) can juniors and seniors design their work lives in support of sustainability throughout their careers and beyond?  How can companies adjust their workplace efforts to accommodate across generations? 

At The Social Business Club miniconference we explored practical cases and how-to insights into what sustainable life design looks like across generations. See full miniconference programme

Sustainable development is about passing on a better planet to future generations – but what about the current ones? Why do we only hear about Millennial work-life demands when talking about sustainability in the work place? What about the senior generations who care just as much?
