Conference Theme: Innovation for Sustainability

Now more than ever, organizations need to innovate to stay relevant in a dynamic, global environment. The theme of the 24th World Forum is consistent with the World Forum’s ten year focus on sustainability. Today, sustainable enterprises not only require innovative business practices in product design, partnerships, logistics, marketing, accounting, and finance; sustainable enterprises themselves have created new norms for what counts as innovation in business and hold the promise of redefining what effective business strategy looks like in the 21stcentury.

Xavier College Year 9 students discover where our recycled materials go

On Tuesday 27 February, I was privileged enough to be part of the sustainability excursion to the ‘Rethink’ Education Centre’, located at the Recycling Material Recovery Facility in Bellfield. At ‘Rethink’, recycling is sent from a number of local councils and sorted into different materials that can be reprocessed and reused. We learnt about the resources we take from the earth to create packaging; oil is used to make plastic, bauxite for aluminium, iron ore for steel cans, sand for glass and trees for making paper and cardboard. We were given a tour of the facility. Everybody was waiting for this moment.

AJCU Ecology Educators is a repository of resources for Jesuit education and Ignatian spirituality gathered and developed by the faculty and staff of Xavier University. It is our hope that you will find these resources useful in your work with board members, faculty, staff, students, retreatants, and parishioners.
