What is Sustainable Future Hub?

At the centre of LUSEM’s ambition to contribute to a more sustainable society sits the Sustainable Future Hub. By bringing together LUSEM’s broad network within the business, student and academic communities, the School seeks to find new perspectives and solutions to today’s collective sustainability challenges and thus create positive change for people, society and the environment.

The LUSEM vision is to make a difference by being a world-class business school that works to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition. Deeply rooted in this vision is the recognition that the big questions and problems we face today can only be solved through collaboration, where different perspectives are allowed to meet and be challenged.

Sustainability represents many of the greatest challenges of our time, which neither the individual, society nor country may solve single-handedly. Instead, they demand collective, global action and an openness and willingness to try new ideas and methods.

In response to this, LUSEM have established the Sustainable Future Hub with the explicit purpose to gather some of society’s most important actors in a concerted pursuit towards a more sustainable future.

Within the Sustainable Future Hub corporate leaders, students and researches meet regularly on equal terms to listen to, be inspired by and collaborate with each other to test new perspectives and solutions to today’s sustainability issues.

By taking advantage of LUSEM’s unique access to the resourcefulness of business, the passionate drive of students and the insightfulness of academia, the Sustainable Future Hub represents an important voice and positive force within the contemporary sustainability debate.

Sustainable Future Hub was launched by Lund University School of Economics and Management in 2019 and is funded by Sparbanken Skåne and Sparbanksstiftelsen Finn. More about the bank and the foundations at www.sparbankenskane.se/agarstiftelser.
