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.
Featuring inspiring speakers, plenary panels, interactive sessions and participation of members of the Swedish Royal Family – our Digital Action Lab series will provide companies with leading insight and tools on how to best advance children´s rights and manage related risks in their operations and supply chains.
