Theme: Sustainability in Economic Universities

This event occurred on
December 17, 2021
Poznan, Wielkopolskie

The main point of this talk is the connection between sustainability and economics. Nowadays while talking about sustainability we tend to forget the three pillars of it: environment, society, economy. Having said that, the aim of the event is to show the importance to young economists, entrepreneurs, professors, and other professionals that sustainability should be integrated with the economy. Students of economic universities are the future business owners so creating awareness among them is important for our future.
The main point that the listener should take away after this talk is how sustainability is connected with economy and business and that every business decision should aim to be as sustainable as possible so as to help the society, improve the profit of the company but also protect and maintain the natural resources.
