We are at the dawn of the 4th revolution, which revives fears of automation and human obsolescence. We live in a world that depletes its resources before they have time to regenerate. The current economic system is reaching its limits; we need to evolve. Companies and private corporations have a unique opportunity to take the lead and show that positive social and environmental impact rimes with financial success and is a condition for future prosperity. A shift among leaders is already taking place towards conscious capitalism. The SDGs, inclusive, circular and regenerative economy model provides an important new lens through which business can explore new opportunities, more effectively manage its risks and secure an enduring license to operate on the road to 2030. This unique program is designed to equip a team of effective agents of change to identify how to become forward-thinking actors of the Blue Economy. It aims to give « DRIVE » and « TOOLS » to leaders, so that they can launch a transformation process. Participants will understand that walking the talk has numerous benefits such as attracting investors and talents, gaining credibility and ensuring financial sustainability.
