Real Strategies for People, Planet, Profit

CQUniversity's Office of Social Innovation presents Sustainable Futures: Real Strategies for People, Planet, Profit.

This national series of workshops and presentations features Professor Jay Friedlander, Sharpe-McNally Chair of Green and Socially Responsible Business at College of the Atlantic.

An early founder of sustainable business programs in the US, Prof Friedlander created the business design model Abundance Cycle, and is setting the global agenda around sustainable business, entrepreneurship and embedding the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.
