“Sustainable Value Creation Conference 2023” by University of Oslo

We had the pleasure of attending the incredibly successful and insightful conference “Sustainable value creation and bottom-up approaches through law and governance: Realising the potential of small- and medium-sized businesses” organized by the University of Oslo, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the University of Mercata, and the Jean Monnet Chair in Business Law in the EU and Sustainable Economy. 

Such a fantastic opportunity to learn about the latest research, innovative ideas, and practical solutions related to the sustainable development of small- and medium-sized businesses, including sustainability, environmental law, governance, and corporate social responsibility.

The conference highlighted the importance of bottom-up approaches, where businesses are encouraged to take the lead in sustainable development, rather than waiting for top-down regulations.This bottom-up approach is crucial in ensuring that sustainable development is embedded into the culture of businesses, and the conference highlighted this in a practical and engaging way.

The virtual format allowed for participants from all over the world to attend and engage in meaningful discussions. The conference was well-structured, and the presentations were informative and thought-provoking. The insights gained from this conference will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the future of sustainable development for small- and medium-sized businesses. 

We look forward to continuing to engage with other organizations in the future, as we work towards creating a more sustainable world for future generations.
