“We live in turbulent times” has become an understatement. The COVID-19 pandemic put sustainability concerns center stage.
Not only has the pandemic shown that the spread of viruses is accelerated by unsustainable human practices, it has also had
an impact on some of the most-discussed sustainability issues of our time. Of course, this pandemic is one of the many crises
– e.g., climate change, biodiversity, a range of humanitarian crises – that impacts us as individuals and our organizations.
This sub-plenary will discuss how crises have affected and will affect sustainable business practices, and how organization and organizing impact the ways that sustainability crises are perceived and addressed. The panelists will also reflect on the crises–sustainability nexus in light of selected Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
