This weekend, July 5-8, the Department of Business Administration at Maharishi University of Management is hosting a free symposium. The premise of the event is a transformation of consciousness is needed in order to truly “embed” sustainability in companies and society. The symposium will explore the topic of “deep green business” and the role of inner sustainability (and the expansion of consciousness) in green business. The event will feature experts from Maharishi University of Management, Iowa, The United Kingdom, and China.
There will be discussion and presentations about how this transformation of consciousness can take place, what the mechanics of this change are, how businesses and communities are already facilitating this transformation, and what the end result will look like.
Speakers and Presentation Topics
The keynote speaker is book author and TV producer Hazel Henderson. Hazel is a pioneer in the the field of ecologically sustainable human development and socially responsible business. Her presentation will be about ethical markets.
Professor Yu Qiwu, from Capital University of Economics and Business in Beijing, will present on the “Study on the Mechanism and Benefits of Promoting Green Consumption in Beijing.”
Other topics will include:
- Green marketing
- Green manufacturing
- Lean management
- Sustainability circles
- Financing sustainability
- Investing in the sustainability sector
“We hope members of the community will join us as we explore the role of consciousness in creating sustainable business and a sustainable world,” said Maharishi University of Management professor and Deep Green Business Symposium organizer Vicki Herriott.
The event will be held in the new Sustainable Living Center.
