What do you value about Our Planet and its People? If you were asked to describe your home landscape, what would you say? Which trees, and which flowers? Which animals and which insects? What foods do you like to eat? Where do you like to go on holiday? And if someone said they were going to take that away, how would you respond? On our current trajectory, many of those things will have been taken away from everyone by 2050. Our People and Planet are under threat. Now is the time to ACT.
On Nov. 8th, the join us for the first Sustainability Summit organized by PMI Chapters across Europe (including UK, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Sweden, Turkey and more). This Summit recognizes the importance of putting our PMI value into action – “Together we can”. Have you already registered for the event? Great! If not, you still have time to sign up.

What can you expect from the event?
You will have access to experts speaking on sustainability topics we are facing from around the world. We will be able to exchange ideas and be inspired by the energy and insights shared by our panel discussions and talks.
After a keynote talk, you can choose between three main tracks: People, Planet and Projects. In the different tracks, you will have the possibility to delve into focused topics on how we individuals or as part of organizations can make the difference by fostering sustainability in our behaviors, our industry, our work and, ultimately, how we impact the world.
You will also have the possibility to gain a deeper view of how projects can help in sustainability and how we, as project managers, can plan our projects with sustainability in mind… Project Management brings together the “Why”, the “What” and the “How” to reach such goals.
