Multi-stakeholder workstudio in Berlin: "Collaboration for Sustainable Lifestyles through Business and Social Innovations"



 

 

After a year of sharing and learning about inspirational experiences in Bogotá, Manila and Ghana, the current series of workstudios closed with the multi-stakeholder workstudio in Berlin on 4-5 November 2013. The Deutsche Telekom office opened its doors to over 60 participants from across Europe engaged in a dialogue on how business and social innovations can foster the uptake of sustainable lifestyles in Europe, associated success factors, and pathways in which stakeholders can assist with achieving the vision of living sustainably in Europe. The event was organised by the CSCP in partnership with the European Environment Agency (EEA) and its Topic Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (ETC/SCP), and with the support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

Global Network Videos

The Global Network features a series of videos to introduce the network and share impressions and learnings from the multi-stakeholder workstudios held in Bogota, Manila, and Accra. The video on the global network describes in a very didactic way what scaling up positive business impacts on sustainable living is all about and what role the network plays in this process.

New Feature: What Is Happening in the BISS Project Countries

The multi-stakeholder workstudios brought together actors of change in four countries in four different continents. We want to keep track of the ongoing efforts and enhance the story telling in these countries. Therefore, we created groups to enable follow-up discussions and share country specific information and news relevant to scaling up business impacts on sustainable living.

Interview Series - Scaling Up Impacts on Sustainable Living

In our new interview series we share practical experiences and knowledge of professionals. These professionals will include an entrepreneur, civil society organisation, and a service provider. The interviews take sustainable living as a starting point for identifying and developing innovative business approaches to scale up their impacts on creating 'one planet living'. To set the scene, Dick van Beers, Global Network Manager, provides our first interview. We aim to have three more interviews completed by the end of this year. New interviews will available soon!
