In this lecture series, practitioners from corporate sustainability management, non-profit organizations, and social entrepreneurship start-ups will present and discuss their sustainability-related activities, goals, as well as the challenges which they face during their everyday business. The format will be designed in a way that after an introductory talk, there will be plenty of room for interactive discussions with the guest lecturers. Critical discussions around current developments, as e.g., during and after the corona crisis, are especially encouraged.
