We live in a rapidly changing world where unprecedented challenges call on business to formulate new strategies to remain relevant. We are experiencing the consequences of climate change, navigating risks and opportunities of digitalisation, understanding shifting consumer patterns and adapting to new demographic and globalisation trends. Business and children alike are key stakeholders in this new setting. Both groups are enablers, catalysts, and drivers of change. And both have great potential to create positive impacts.
