S-CONNECT is a network of individuals with a passion for sustainability. With regular interactive discussions, we serve as a platform for cross-sector collaboration on sustainability for individuals from all backgrounds and interests.
Launched September, 2020
We hold regular meetings including informal networking events to get to know people in the sustainability, and structured discussions around sustainable business. Our sustainability events are virtual and open to all.
We are delighted to welcome Dina Hestad, who has just completed her PhD at Oxford University investigating the key success factors of sustainability-oriented hybrid organisations (i.e., social enterprises or cooperatives) and how they contribute to organizing sustainability transformations in urban environments. In this interactive discussion we will explore what businesses can learn from successful sustainability-oriented hybrid organisations i.e., enterprises that
are managing to balance profit and achieve positive environmental and social outcomes. Dina will take us to Barcelona and Istanbul to talk about what's happening there among the sustainability oriented-hybrid
organizations she studied during her PhD.
We'll also discuss the link between individual, organizational, and systems change, and ask what transformative capacities could we be developing in cities, communities, organisations, and individuals to shape a more equitable
and sustainable future through business ventures.
Hope to see you there!
