About the Schumacher Institute

"The Schumacher Institute is a think tank. We believe that our planet faces complex social, economic and environmental crises that are hard to solve, however, we are optimistic that solutions can be found. We apply systems thinking to explore and test sustainable options, which acknowledge the complexity of our world. We see social justice as integral to sustainability and look for answers that are fair to all, within the limits the Earth can sustain."

Save the Date: 7th CR3+ Conference

Save the Date: 7th CR3+ Conference

We are pleased to announced that the 7th CR3 + Conference will take place on 24-25 October 2019 at La Trobe Business School.

CR3+ is a collaborative initiative of four PRME champions: Audencia Business School (France), Hanken School of Economics (Finland), ISAE/FGV (Brazil) and La Trobe Business School (Australia). These champions have been working together since 2008, with the aim to exchange ideas, pedagogical processes, curriculum and research in the area of corporative responsibility.

This year conference’s overall theme is ‘Using Dialogue to Build Partnerships for Sustainability’. The conference explores how partnerships can bring about sustainable solutions as we work together on progressing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As we work towards building a more sustainable world we cannot work in isolation. Partnerships are necessary to ensure long term success. However, the partnership model may be problematic, with issues arising such as co-option and abuse of power. Differences between actors can also lengthen the journey and make the measure of success difficult to determine.

We want you to join in collaborative and constructive dialogue to extend your networks and deepen your understanding of corporate responsibility.
