DIS students lead the way
New complex challenges requires new modes of thinking and new models for doing business.
New challenges, new conditions, new demands, new technologies, new innovations, new economic models, new ways of doing business, new policymaking and new ways of living.
EXPLORING BUSINESS LANDSCAPES
HelloScience & Sustainia teams up with Danish Institute for Study Abroad. The Livelab is part of a 4 month course where the 27 students have explored, visited and learned about the nordic business landscape. At the Livelab they will use their experiences and new knowledge to develop a case and get feedback from the jury.
The students will be divided into groups and work on cases with radical ideas and sustainable principles that can make SDG 13 impact. The cases are presented for the jury and will be evaluated on how innovative the idea is, whether the idea is feasible, as well as the SDG Impact.

Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is likely to surpass 3 degrees centigrade this century. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.
