FRAMEWORKS IN A FISHBOWL

Understanding how to apply different normative frameworks for sustainability is challenging. Delegates at the Conference bring experience, questions and opinions on sustainability reporting and management, and talking to each other is key to gaining a better understanding of how to use the frameworks available. An interactive ‘fishbowl’ approach will be used at the Conference to explore the different frameworks, how they interact and how business is navigating through them.

The aim of a fishbowl is to enable true dialogue amongst speakers and delegates. It encourages people to ask questions and listen – key skills required for good stakeholder engagement. 

For a fishbowl, the room is set up with a roundtable and chairs in the middle, and concentric circles of chairs surrounding the inner circle. Four invited speakers sit at the table, with an additional three empty chairs - delegates are invited to join the conversation at different stages through the process, bringing their knowledge and questions to the conversation.
