EVENT DETAILS

Innovation fueled by the demand to be sustainable is not simply creating "green" products. It requires advancing business operations and processes to become more efficient by being more radically creative and getting closer to your customer to understand their needs and requirements.


Through different studies made, researchers discovered that businesses that were leaders in sustainability are also innovation leaders. These businesses take advantage of the constraints that would hinder others from being creative, use it as a motivation to up creativity in addressing sustainability directives. These businesses also empower their employees to come up with new solutions for whatever problem may arise. Through these exercises and consciousness, employees of these businesses see the whole value chain.


The Nordic Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (NordCham Philippines) wishes to delve more into the relationship of sustainability and innovation and thus invites you to this year's NORDIC INNOVATION FORUM: BUILDING A THRIVING INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM​ TO SUPPORT SUSTAINABILITY GOALS happening on 1 - 2 June 2021.


Day 1: Forum | 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM | Member Ticket: 500PHP | Non-member Ticket: 1000PHP

  • Radical Creativity: Empower an experimental culture by building the spaces and practices that encourage us to break boundaries and create novel perspectives
  • Operationalising Design to Drive Innovation and Customer Experience in your Organisation: Uncover deep customer-insights, develop unique concepts, and rapidly test prototypes with users and stakeholders to turbo-charge your growth
