CZU is aware of its responsibility towards society and the environment and has long been dealing with issues of how to improve the social responsibility of its activities and contribute to achieving sustainable development of society and its relationship to the environment.
The conference will present various approaches to the implementation of corporate social responsibility (CSR). The introduction of the conference will present the results of a comparative study showing the development of social responsibility at universities. Subsequently, there will be three contributions presenting different concepts of sustainability in different institutions. A sustainability strategy for the whole of the Czech Republic will be presented. This will be followed by an insight into how they approach social responsibility in the town of Kopřivnice. And the third contribution from practice reveals what responsible activities they implement at Sonnentor. The conference will be closed by a panel discussion between representatives of universities on the implementation of social responsibility in the academic environment.
The event is intended for all who want to broaden their horizons in the field of social responsibility and sustainability. The conference will provide concrete examples and general strategies for how organizations can contribute to a better state of society and the environment. Refreshments will be provided on-site.
