Recording of John Robinson’s CBS Inaugural Lecture: Making a Difference: Universities as Living Labs and Agents of Change (Aug 25, 2016)

In this lecture, John explores the challenges and opportunities facing universities attempting to respond to this demand with regard to sustainability. Based on an agenda which moves beyond harm reduction to what we call regenerative sustainability (human activity that improves both human and environmental wellbeing), and using CBS as an example, he outlines an agenda for transforming the campus into a living laboratory of sustainability, where faculty, staff and students, along with private, public and NGO sector partners, use the university’s physical plant, as well education and research capabilities, to test, study, teach, apply and share lessons learned, technologies created and policies developed.

This lecture marks the beginning of John Robinson’s adjunct professorship with the Department of Intercultural Communication and Management at Copenhagen Business School.
