Peak Programme 2018

Sustainability Cohort



What is it?

The Peak Programme 2018 is a week-long gathering of the Sustainability Cohort and it features a mix of planned sessions and open slots for exploring areas of common interest, listening to something-interesting-before-dinner and walking into the beautiful surroundings.


Who should attend?

The week-long event is open to researchers (at different career stages) and practitioners who want to expand their network and explore how they might build their knowledge and skills in industrial sustainability.

Please note that places are limited and this event is by invitation only.

We welcome researchers / practitioners to contact us if interested to participate in the programme and contribute to the Cohort community with new insights.
