Event description
Online masterclass for business professionals on how to build CSO-business partnerships for the SDGs

About this Event

Now is the time for ambitious CSO-business partnerships.

With the impact of the Covid-19 crisis becoming more widespread, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are more vital than ever. Equally important is the opportunity for Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and businesses to create ambitious partnerships that deliver on them.

As part of the Bridge 47 project, Irish Development Education Association (IDEA) and Remarkable Partnerships are hosting an online partnerships masterclass - for business professionals - to enable you to emerge stronger from the Covid-19. We will show you how to ‘build back better’ through purposeful CSO partnerships that educate and innovate for a better future.

Time and dates

The masterclass, designed for all levels of business professionals, consists of three sessions from 9:30am to 11:10am (GMT +1) on 4th, 5th and 6th July 2020.

Module 1

  • Why purpose-driven business is so important and how to find your purpose
  • How CSOs can help you go beyond traditional CSR and improve understanding of sustainable development in your business
  • How to identify your objectives for CSO partnerships and what value you can offer to CSOs in return

Module 2

  • How to select your partners and secure organisational buy-in

Module 3

  • An understanding of the benefits Global Citizenship Education can have for your business and how CSO partnerships can unlock these
  • Your list of potential partner CSOs developed in collaboration with a team of experts
  • An understanding of the benefits each of those partners could bring
  • CSO-business partnership examples in the context of the SDGs
  • Inspiration and confidence to create more meaningful partnerships
