10 June 2014

Early bird tickets for our 2014 conference, Project NZ: #theBIGshift, will go on sale on Thursday 12 June, so keep an eye on your inbox for more details. In the meantime, check out two videos to find out more about #theBIGshift in action.

Project NZ, our 2014 conference, will launch a new approach to solving sustainability challenges in business. Created by Forum for the Future, one of the world’s leading sustainability organisations, #theBIGshift is a simple and effective method to identify practical ways of bringing about change. Already used by global brands like Nike, Unilever and Marks & Spencer, this will be the first time it has been used in New Zealand.

CEO of the Sustainable Business Network (SBN) Rachel Brown says that, like Forum for the Future, SBN believes we need a big shift in the way we do business to bring about a more sustainable future.

“We’ll be launching #theBIGshift at our conference, and attendees will be among the first people in New Zealand to learn how to apply it to their organisations,” she says.

Forum for the Future have created a great 2-minute video about #theBIGshift. Watch it to find out which global businesses are taking part in it and why they’re involved.
