“Change today for a better tomorrow”
The last two years have been rough and challenging for companies and society. A once in-a-century pandemic, in which we still find ourselves, devastated lives and economies and moreover requires flexible leaders and open mindsets. But while Covid-19 was on everyone’s lips, it is far from the only challenge businesses and society face nowadays. Climate change hit harder than ever with bigger storms, increasing number of deadly floods and longer and hotter heat waves. 2021 is on track to be one of the hottest years in human history and IPCC report shows extreme weather events will worsen further.
Amid the current crisis, a generation has found its voice and demands changes from government and businesses who to start listening, understanding and acting. This has been demonstrated by the purpose driven business movement. Companies need to tell their story and give a recognizable meaning to what they are reaching for in the future. We must change for a better tomorrow with meaning and no empty promises.
With “Vision Zero”, the connectUS team 2022 have developed our own framework to guide this year’s team and delegation. “Vision Zero” highlights negative actions and attitudes we aim to eliminate to create a better tomorrow.
Following an insight into three of the eight “Zeros”:
With our delegation being in the last year of their studies, job search is around the corner. When applying for a position, several factors are considered. Employees want to be a part of the organization and the values it delivers. Organizations are expected to be authentic and not delusional for the aim of recruiting and retaining talent.
All together, “Vision Zero” guides connectUS22 to learn how businesses can act in a more purpose-oriented manner along with the idea of sustainability for oneself and the community. We are very much looking forward into insightful discussions and speeches, broadening our horizon.
