About this Event

This evening of celebration and reflection, two years since the inauguration of the AMS Chair in Sustainable Transformation supported by Chair partners BASF, Port of Antwerp and Randstad, will showcase global expertise in systems thinking and global leadership in sustainable practice.

We are delighted to have a keynote from Peter Senge, the American systems scientist and senior lecturer at MIT Sloan School of Management, who is well known for his bestselling book The Fifth Discipline and his work on organizational learning and sustainable futures. In his books and articles, Senge has claimed that sustainability is both ‘the necessary revolution’ and ‘not what you think it is’.

The evening will also feature a panel discussion among the CEOs of BASF, Port of Antwerp and Randstad and a reflection on integrated value management by Prof Wayne Visser on the challenges and opportunities of implementing sustainable transformation in practice.

What you will learn:

  • How a learning organization thinks about and practices sustainable development.
  • How the SDGs can be adopted and implemented in a more integrated, systemic way.
  • What sustainable transformation means to business leaders who are making it happen.
