About the Course

The achievement of a balanced economic, social and environmental development - as expressed in the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development - is recognized as one of the major challenges humanity is facing today. What is less clear is whether and how organizations can generate business opportunities and value for their stakeholders while tackling such challenges. In this course, thought leaders in a wide variety of management and economics fields illustrate how to assess and seize the opportunities offered by these global emergencies. They will offer new ways to understand the purpose and the logic of success of the business enterprise in this new context, providing ideas and examples on how to manage the transition process to realize the value creation potential from corporate sustainability for all involved stakeholders. Learning objectives The course will allow you to: - Understand What the macroeconomic and microeconomic consequences of both climate changes, poverty, hunger, gender or race discriminations, lack of communication between the State, Civil Societies, and businesses, etc are. - Understand Why it is important for businesses to tackle sustainability issues in order to create more and better business opportunities; - Learn How each individual, organization and system can start to analyze its behaviors and change towards more sustainable practices and models....

Some or the links to reading material has been diactivated and it not possible to get acceess. For the week 4 quiz, I had to do a lot of reasearch and read a lot of unrelated to the course documents to fugure out the answer to one of the questions. Also I am at week 5 and my course progress is at 16 percent. I understand it is a system glitch, but it is very discouraging...I hope you will fix all this soon.

Course material seems to be a bit outdated, a review and update of the course would be recommendable.

Excellent content, but very hard to pass it because we need to wait for peers to review.

The Abstract/Paper Report was not well written. The information given about the BlackRock CEO letter was not completley accurate. However, reading that Fink document was informative. The meditation mindset continued the "Self indulgence" mindset and I think it only promoted the person as the ultimate power unto itself, and that causes more short-term thinking and anxiety, simply because Individuals are not "islands unto themselves" and dont have the answers. It never promoted God as the ulmiatate source of knowlwedge, and as the fount of Life, as we know it and Jesus as the way, the truth and the life, the way to eternal life. Thanks.

Zero should be an option. How do I drop out?
