The course is based on the book Better Business Better Future by Elisabet Lagerstedt (2022), who will be your teacher on this journey.
Who is this online course for?
The online course Better Business Better Future is designed for corporate leaders, strategist, change makers, and teams aiming to future proof themselves and their businesses by integrating sustainability into the very core.
As an individual this course will provide you with the insights and confidence that you need to move forward. As a team, it will provide you with a shared understanding to take the next steps toward co-creating powerful impact together.
Why is this online course relevant now?
Social and planetary tipping points are being reached, technology development is accelerating and inflection points are imminent in many industries. Yet, far too few companies have chosen to integrate sustainability into the very core. Still, many wicked problems urgently need innovative solutions. Solutions that the world of business is particularly well equipped to address through the ingenuity, creativity, collaboration, and resources that it can so often call forth more effectively and efficiently than other human organizations. Here and now, this requires a move beyond business as usual and a transformation into Better Business.
This online course, and the book, offers a way forward. It helps you understand the Sustainability Revolution, and provides valuable insights into the journeys and strategic choices of sustainability trailblazers such as Patagonia, Interface, Orsted, Unilever, IKEA, and Oatly. Because you are not the first company to discover the potential in doing well by doing good, or as William Gibson said: "The future is already here - it's just not very evenly distributed."
What is the content of the different modules?
This online course has seven modules and a workbook for further exploration and reflections on the content in relation to your own business. Every module contains short lessons (text and video), a quiz to support your learning, and recommended links for extended learning beyond the course. The forum also provide a powerful way of asking questions, sharing reflections and ideas with other course participants and the teacher.
