Inspire to Impact 2020

Changing the game in business for a more sustainable future

Everyone can contribute to accelerate the green transition. We bring students and business leaders together for inspiration and insight on how to conduct sustainable business today and in the future.

The aim is to raise awareness on how everyone can contribute to turning climate risks into action and how to accelerate the green transition, by displaying current game changers and addressing the path ahead for solutions, strategies and mindsets for our only future. In addition to our speakers, several companies will be present at stands around campus.

This day is a part of the three-day conference “Inspire”, one of the largest student events in Norway, driven by students and for students at BI Norwegian Business School.
