Sustainability in the broadest sense is nothing new, this has been on the agenda in various ways and times. Our session is not meant to be a debate with opponents, but more an hour of reflection where we “wonder” about the topic.
Some issues to reflect on:
Are we moving forward, or are we spinning?
What do we lack in our implementation ability around sustainability?
If we move in the right direction, do we have the pace required?
What can we do differently?
Are we planning – and executing correctly?
