Business Innovation for Sustainable Growth

True friends open doors for you so you can enter new worlds. One such good friend is Kristofer Erlandsson from Processim. After an excellent Rotary lunch where Jonas Hallberg did a thought-provoking and funny presentation on rhetoric, he introduced me to the Globe Forum Business Network. In addition to the network and all the material published, conferences are organised around the globe. Make sure you are in Stockholm May 7-8 for the conference “Business Innovation for Sustainable Growth”. Of course, Stockholm in May is a treat in itself.

Göteborg also has its attractions. Last week I was invited to a house-warming party at the newly launched unit for Sustainable Business Development at Chalmers University of Technology. In addition to talking to all the guests I had the honour of being the photographer, my first official photo assignment!
If you are interested in sustainable development and innovation, there are several excellent communities and information sources you can rely on. One of them is World Changing, an online journal with reports from all over the world trying to connect the dots. Another great source of information is the UK-based think tank Demos, who recently launched their new “Atlas of Ideas 2.0” project covering innovation in Asia, the Islamic world and Brazil. Also there is always TED with inspired talks by the world's greatest thinkers and doers.

Do you know of any other great sources? Please, make a comment tell us!
