Sustainability – blurry futures or promising times?

Often times, reflections about sustainability tend to be misleading for a number of reasons: biases when thinking about the future, lack of clarity as to what it is to be sustained, the fact that sustainabilty is good by definition (which sometimes leads to downplaying, when not overlookiing at all, the necessary effort to make it happen), a significant confusion between means and ends… This talk will shed light on these issues from an economic standpoint.

Join us in celebrating the upcoming edition of our IE Sustainability Bootcamp  which will start on May 10th, 2024.

As this session is part of IE Sustainability Bootcamp´s activities, we will seize the  opportunity to get a closer look to this program. The Academic Director will share insights into the curriculum, admissions process and career opportunities during the session, followed by some time for Q&A.
