One-Day Forum 29 March 2012
This SBN forum aims to shed light on the latest sustainable thinking which will be evidenced via real business case studies.  You'll have the opportunity to participate in practical and co-creation sessions to ensure your business excels in a new sustainable era of shared values and collaboration.  An effective sustainable business must redefine value; engage its audiences; and work collaboratively in order to thrive.  This forum will endeavour to provide the thinking and tools necessary to facilitate this.

Sustainable Backyards forum: Prosperity, Innovation & Action.
International Business Journalist Rod Oram returns to Tauranga with Morgan Williams, Former Commissioner for the Environment, and a local guest speaker to examine local, national and international initiatives working towards sustainable growth. The Forum will be held at Tauranga Boys College on 20th March, 7-9pm and tickets will be $15. For more information or to pre-book a ticket, please email the Environment Centre
