POST Spring School

Topic: The role and value of partnerships in sustainability transformations

24 – 26 May 2023

Organized by Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen Nürnberg

Sustainability challenges fall into social, environmental, and economic domains and are
complex, wicked, and transboundary in nature. Responding to them effectively requires
different approaches and involvement and cooperation of different stakeholders – private
companies, international organizations, civil society groups, academia, government bodies
and local communities.
Partnerships Orchestrating Sustainability Transformations (POST) is dedicated to
understanding cross-sector partnerships for sustainability transformations through exploring
its meaning, dimensions, context, and nature in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Africa
through interdisciplinary research, exchange, and collaboration.

It was initiated in response to the first funding call for joint institutional activities in
September 2022 by three member institutions of the EELISA.

So far, two workshops have been organized by SNS and UPM in January and March 2023

POST Spring School will be organized by FAU from 24-26 May 2023 in Nürnberg, Germany by
the Centre for Human Rights Erlangen-Nürnberg (CHREN) and Chair for Corporate Sustainability Management. It will focus on deepening the understanding of multi-
stakeholder partnerships engaged in tackling the grand sustainability challenges of our times. As such, it will help participants explore the ‘values’ dimension of partnerships.
