Events - 26 August 2010
26 Aug 2010
Asia Pacific Centre for Sustainable Enterprise (APCSE), Griffith Business School
If the debate over climate change, the global financial crisis and a series of natural and man-made disasters (volcanoes, earthquakes, oil spills, and habitat destruction) are not enough to make humanity take stock and know that there has to be a different future, then what does have to happen to induce change? On 26 August 2010, two events run by APCSE , in association with the Asia Pacific Academy of Business in Society (APABIS) and Waikato Management School , ask what role business and management schools should play in education that is useful, relevant and timely given the current global situation and addresses the future – a future with a significant break from the last 200 hundred years of industrialisation and the institutions and procedures that have developed in the 60 years since the end of World War Two. So we ask: “What should business and management schools be teaching?"
The purpose of this interactive workshop for academics, members of NGOs and other interested parties is to share ideas about motivations, challenges and resources in relation to teaching sustainability in business and management schools. The workshop will be facilitated by Professor Juliet Roper, University of Waikato and President of APABIS; Dr Ray Hibbins, Learning and Teaching Manager, Griffith Business School; and Professor Michelle Barker, Griffith Institute for Higher Education, Griffith University.
Sustainable Enterprise Seminar 5.30-8:00pm
This seminar will elaborate on the discussions from the afternoon workshop and include introductions and brief interventions from Professor Michael Powell, Pro Vice Chancellor (Business), Griffith University; Richard Cassells, Climate Change Leadership and Dr Heather Peirce. The seminar will also include commentaries from Professor Malcolm McIntosh, APCSE, Griffith Business School; Professor Juliet Roper, Waikato Management School and President of APABIS; Professor John Cole, Australian Centre for Sustainable Business and Development, University of Southern Queensland; Associate Professor Andrew Wilford, Mirvac School of Sustainable Development, Bond University; Dr Ray Hibbins, Learning and Teaching, Griffith University; and Professor Michelle Barker, Griffith Institute for Higher Education, Griffith University.
