Working sessions 2.1. : Pursuing social purpose

What is the purpose of organisations? How can organisations pursuit a social and/or environmental purpose at the same time that they are financially sustainables? How can they guarantee human rights and environmental protection? During this session we will analyse whether people serve organisations or organisations serve people. We will explore how to encourage organisations to think people before profit and how they can be profitable, environmentally sustainable and people-centred at the same time. We will count on real experiences such as Tessa Wernink, co-founder of Fairphone and Nicholas Allen who manages the suppliers chain in PATAGONIA
