This interactive workshop session with business representatives will explore questions such as ‘Whose responsibility is it to take care of societal wellbeing?’ and ‘How would my company need to change?’ if it was a business responsibility.

The session will involve an interactive activity that lets participants reflect on and evaluate what worked and what didn’t work in the past in creating change in their organisations that transformed business practices and outcomes.  The session will also provide participants with an insight into how much their businesses are already implementing and operating within a ‘New Development Paradigm’.

The session concludes with discussion about what could be done to be more effective at implementing change that shifts business into the realm of solving social and environmental problems. The outcomes from this session will be compiled as anonymous data to form part of a PhD Research study undertaken by the Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology Sydney, Australia.
