Sustainability: The Human Factor
Empowering millennials to lead positive change.
Sustainability: The Human Factor. Empowering millennials to lead positive change.
From our participants a generation of future leaders will sprout. They want to bring about true change and guide our world towards a sustainable future. We are dedicated to equip them with the necessary mindset, leadership skills and network to make the desired change happen.
This year we focus on The Human Factor. In our view, the Human Factor has three dimensions. Sustainable change is always initiated by human beings, even if there’s a technological solution. Secondly, humanity is a determining value to create sustainable impact. And finally, we want to have a broader scope: what impact does your organisation have on the human race as a whole?
These three dimensions shape the programme of The Nudge Global Impact Challenge 2019. What is it you need to realise sustainable change and make the impact you envision? How do you incorporate all actors affected by your actions? How do you effectively influence stakeholders? And how do you keep going when obstacles get in your way?
Our participants dream of a sustainable future. We will help them grow on a personal level and enhance their support system to lead positive, sustainable and profitable change.
