The kick-off event of the 5th edition of “The State of the Sustainability Profession” (SOP) was held on September 15th. Due to COVID-19, this year’s event is now transformed into multiple online events and workshops spread across numerous dates. The Sustainability University has decided to change the setting as we do not want to put unnecessary pressure on public transport to come together in Amersfoort, where the past State of the Sustainability Profession events took place.
Don’t miss out on your chance to meet experienced colleagues online, exchange knowledge and learn from each other. Each session enables conversations on a peer-to-peer level with sustainability professionals across different industries – it connects us all through the denominator of the profession of sustainability professional. The program is tailormade, based on survey results we received from the past State of the Sustainability Profession. This 5th edition was organized by the Sustainability University.

What COVID-19 safety measures are you adopting?
