Illustrative Nordic cases on sustainability

Illustrative Nordic cases on sustainability

In this work group, we develop case-studies that highlight sustainability challenges and solutions in industries of importance to the Norwegian economy. The cases will be used as input in two of AFINO’s other work groups: The Nordic Sustainable Innovation Dialogue series and Learning arenas through Future Literacy Laboratories. They will also be applied in teaching in Bachelor, Master and Executive programs at the BI Norwegian Business School.

In close collaboration with our partners from the industry, public sector and civil-society, we will develop one to two new cases each year. They will be selected based on media-analysis and stakeholder and expert interviews, and in collaboration with partners from the two working groups mentioned above. When selecting relevant cases related to sustainability, innovation and whistleblowing, we will focus particularly on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We are specifically concerned with “the Nordic model”, and to what extent and how it is able to combine social and ecological sustainability with productivity and innovation.

We will publish our results in case reports intended for a general, but informed, public. The issues around sustainability brought up in the reports will be used as a basis for the stakeholder dialogues and workshops coordinated by our two partner work groups in AFINO.
