APPROACHES TO INTEGRATING SUSTAINABILITY INTO BUSINESS SCHOOLS
20-21 October 2011
Nottingham University Business School, UK
The project ‘Integrating Sustainability into Business Schools’ (ISIBS) is near completion. Therefore we want to present and discuss our findings with a wider audience at a final workshop on the 20th and 21st October at the Nottingham University Business School. The workshop has been conceived to provide a forum for wide ranging debate on approaches to integrating sustainability into business schools and the aim of the workshop is to enable an exchange of experiences by members of Business Schools, other University departments and wider institutions engaged with this agenda.
