Creating a Sustainable Venture


Students from two of our Masters programmes took part in a joint workshop with Umeå Business School. This one day workshop was about inter-disciplinary exchange, learning from other courses and sharing new techniques. The theme of the workshop was 'Creating a Sustainable Venture'. 

The aim was to provide tools to specify and develop an idea for sustainable venture, which may broadly include campaigns, projects, or non-profit and commercial enterprises that are socially and ecologically driven. This includes formulation of the actual idea, resources required to realize it, stakeholders that affect or are affected by this idea and also the relevant spatial context.

Many thanks to Maxim Vlasov and the Business School for hosting us!
