CSR GENEVA RETREAT – Creating Deeper Change. May 22-24

CSR Geneva Retreat

Are you working on issues related to CSR in Geneva and want to achieve a greater scale of systemic change? Are you looking for new opportunities to further CSR in Geneva whilst deepening your own sense of well-being? Do you seek a community of people to share your vision of how CSR could be developed in Geneva ?

Join us for a weekend retreat to reflect individually and collectively in discerning your role in systemic change. Through a cross-sectoral focus on systems thinking, participants will be challenged to deepen their perspectives on a personal and professional level. The retreat will function as a forum for exchange between representatives from civil society (NGOs, unions), academia, the public sector (national and international) and the private sector. This cross section will ensure the diversity necessary for deep change. At the close of the retreat, people will be equipped with a deeper sense of self and a plan of action to realise new opportunities related to CSR in Geneva.
