Entrepreneurship and Innovation for Sustainable Development Circle

Inspiring system change in business

The Enterprise, Innovation & Sustainable Development Circle of the Foundation for Future Generations is a peer learning group of about 30 entrepreneurs who exchange on solutions to advance the business community along the transition towards a sustainable economy. Senior CEOs and younger entrepreneurs from Wallonia and Brussels, they come from a wide range of economic sectors and business sizes.
 
Activities
The programme consists of 4 annual meetings during which members discuss a particular topic, going from theory to practice and taking into account real life situations of companies. The programme is developed in partnership with HEC-ULg. Members contribute by hosting the Circle in turn at their production site. The fourth meeting is generally a public conference, open to non-member CEOs and corporate stakeholders, by invitation only.
