“There are no passengers on spaceship Earth. We are all crew”
Due to the growing concern for the condition of our polluted planet, the world of the 21 st century is moving towards sustainable development in almost every sphere of human life and activity. It is increasingly important to respect the expectations of stakeholders, including future generations, and their social, economic, and environmental needs. Public institutions, businesses, and non-governmental organizations engage in various initiatives and policies of sustainable development and at every step try to draw the attention of stakeholders to their responsible behavior. How do they do it? What is the role of our individual values in this process? How to manage it? Those are the questions we will try to answer during this course.
