Sustainability 101 Talks

Sustainability 101 Talks are an event series that aim to bring awareness to the key sustainabiilty challenges and discussions of our time, igniting fruitful exchanges between the different societal actors and further shedding light on potential ideas and solutions that support the sustainable transition towards a more resilient, inclusive and environmentally-friendly society.


The Sustainability 101 Talks bring together leading experts to explain the concepts, frameworks and discussions around selected sustainability topics. Each Sustainability 101 Talk offers a presentation and interactive discussion together with our moderator, and uses different audience engagement tools to provide an interesting and dynamic format. Additionally, in preparation for the event, our team carries out a vox pop on the topic of the session, which is broadcasted during the event.
