About this Event

What we’re about

We have a clear mission with The Green Sprint: to speed up the transition towards a sustainable society. We believe that innovation, creativity and collaboration are crucial for the transition that organizations need to make to operate more sustainably and to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Join us on our mission and participate in our monthly Sustainability Sessions!

About Sustainability Sessions

With Sustainability Sessions, we want to connect professionals who also strive to have a positive impact on the world and focus on tackling sustainable challenges and are interested in how innovation and creativity can help them achieve this. Sustainability Sessions takes place every 4th Tuesday of the month.

As our leading topic in Sustainability Sessions, we seek to explore and answer the question why we need innovation for the transition to a sustainable society and how we might achieve this.

In these sessions, we’ll discuss challenges in the sustainability field with a positive can-do approach. Not to focus on what is going wrong, but to understand what we can do to make it better.

We’ll invite guest speakers to share real-world examples and together, will uncover the process that led them to a successful sustainable innovation, step by step. We strive to make the sessions interactive, by leaving enough room for questions and discussion. In addition, we might use some online tools and ask you to participate in a short workshop or game. We’ll look for the right form depending on the topic, but the core goal is to dive deeper and share insights together.

Guest Speaker 27 October

Our guest speaker for this session is Russ Avery, a.k.a. The Sustainability Marketing Guy. He is a specialist marketing and business growth consultant for sustainability-focused brands which put people and planet above profit. He is also a serial eco entrepreneur, owning several sustainability-focused businesses.

Share your thoughts on 27 October

For this session, we really invite you to share your ideas but also your needs and struggles with us. This will help us to create an amazing series of Sustainability Sessions that will support all of us in pushing the transition forward. To accommodate this, we’ll open up a Miro online Whiteboard and during the meetup, we’ll invite you to share your thoughts about some topics at several moments. Don’t worry if you’re new to Miro – we’ll share an open link (no need to download or create an account) and help you discover and play around with the tool.
