Virtual Thematic Event – Careers in Sustainability: Stories of Sustainability Professionals

19th April 2021, 16:00 - 18:00

This event will take place on Zoom.

Demand for sustainable careers is on the rise. A trend that won’t let up in the coming years. We currently see an unprecedented number of companies and institutions making commitments to cut emissions or become more sustainable in general. All of them will have to come up with concrete action plans to make those commitments a reality soon and they won’t be able to do it alone!

At this thematic event we’re joined by the MBA program of the University of St. Gallen to get inspired by and for careers in sustainability. Together, we will address questions, such as: What does a career in sustainability look like? What possibilities are there? How do I educate myself and take the first steps? How can I get the courage to do what I know to be right?

At this interactive Zoom event, we are joined by senior professionals from LafargeHolcim, Planted, Blue Horizon, Yova, Quantis, Barry Callebaut, Koa and Climeworks. The guest speakers will share their reasons for choosing that path, the hurdles and challenges that they faced and how they managed to overcome them.

Join us on April 19th, 16.00 – 18.00, on Zoom and choose yourself which personal stories you would like to hear!
