Among several event sessions, a learning session on Sustainable Business Modelling for Cleantech will be organised! This webinar will take place on 10th December at 12.30-14.00 CET / 13.30-15.00 SAST.

During this session, participants will learn to apply sustainable business model design patterns to an innovation challenge or a new business idea in the field of cleantech. Using an online collaboration platform (Mural) they generate and prioritise ideas, how to advance the business model in a sustainability-oriented manner, and sketch and refine new business models. 

Pre-selected business model challenges (such as applying a selected design pattern to an existing business model) will be given to the workshop participants at the beginning of the online modelling session. Access to an online workspace (Mural) will be provided during the workshop. The participants do not have to prepare the workshop or to sign-up to Mural before the event. All required inputs and tools will be provided by the workshop facilitators during the event.

Patterns and modelling tool (the can be made accessible for participants to reuse after the workshop. A preview of business model patterns can be accessed here

The interactive session will be followed by a Q&A session.
