About this event

The Network's first research webinar welcomed guest speaker Wendy Stubbs. Wendy is Associate Professor at Monash School of Social Sciences, Monash University, Australia. She presented on ‘The Purpose Ecosystem'.

The 'Purpose Ecosystem'

The private sector plays a critical role in addressing sustainability challenges. It is essential in providing solutions to help meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs).

Can businesses address the complexities involved in interconnected sustainability issues? Forms of alternative organising are emerging that aim to drive wider systems change.

This webinar discussed the emergence of the ‘Purpose Ecosystem’. It explored how those within it aim to create favourable framings, incentives, systems and infrastructures to support the development of purpose-driven businesses.
