ACCIÓN Conference 23 Aug 2016 – 16th meeting on Sustainable Development in Santiago de Chile, CHILE

Petra Kuenkel as Keynote Speaker with her speech “How to unleash the potential of collaboration? – Leading collectively as a pathway to effectiveness”

Every year, ACCIÓN holds a seminar on the latest trends in sustainability and related topics, which is considered the country’s most influential event in the field, attended by more than 1,000 people and broadcast via online streaming to many more.

Collaboration is a powerful transformative force for increasing productivity and efficiency for resource use. Effective collaboration is the product of a constructive relationship between social actors and economic agents. Currently, thanks to the contributions of new technologies and people’s growing desire to participate, effective collaboration allows for the optimization of resource use to achieve further growth, while also finding a balance between this growth, social development, and protection of the environment.

ACCIÓN’s belief is that the productivity agenda will be credible, appealing, and sustainable if economic, political, and social leaders are capable of adopting it under the logic of collaboration. This is affirmed by goal 17 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which is aimed at creating partnerships and collaborating with other actors in order to achieve the other 16 goals that address problems that are specific to humanity and the planet.

This is not an isolated vision. The voices of experts, academics, entrepreneurs, and leaders in society and the environment are coming forth to give an account of their experiences in this field, and to advocate for the pathway of collaboration as the only way to face the world’s current challenges.
