As the world absorbs what happened (and didn’t) at COP26, we use this edition of Ideas Worth Teaching to highlight the issue of climate justice. It was developed as part of the Global Inclusive Growth Partnership, a collaboration between the Aspen Institute and the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth.
The Aspen Institute Business & Society Program: Marjolein Lips-Wiersma, Peter McGhee, Amber Nicholson, Peter Skilling
"Business can be a powerful force for good in this world, and business leaders can help bring about positive change; they do not have to repeat the flawed thinking of previous generations." Can alternative ways of thinking about sustainability bring new forms of success to both business and society? The authors of the Ideas Worth Teaching Award-winning Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability reflect on how the course merges Indigenous and Western perspectives to better prepare students for a changing future.
The Conversation: Sonja Klinsky
