Through a range of exercises and tasks, participants will be encouraged to step back from the ‘green’ agenda and see sustainability more holistically in terms of People and Profit, as well as Planet.
This reframing of the issue triggers an immense range of innovation opportunities previously hidden by a focus on environment. Participants will work in teams to develop these into communications campaigns, products/services or even completely new business models for live brand projects.
