Here’s an event that wasn’t in our dead-tree format calendar because we didn’t know about it. Hat-tip to Erinma Ochu.
Thursday 18 October 2012
1.00pm – 7.00pm
MMU Business School, All Saints Campus, Oxford Road, Manchester M15 6BH
“It’s not about the way we live, it’s about how we live responsibly”
Keep Calm Prepare for Change will examine how we can adjust the way we live, work and do business more sustainably. Keep Calm will encourage individuals to make a difference in their lives, and will aim to demonstrate how this transformation can be achieved by:
•connecting and combining old and new ways of doing business together to make sustainability affordable
•encouraging the wise use of resources – reduce, reuse and recycle
•celebrating successful examples of affordable sustainability.
There are three parts to the event – Panel Debate, Lecture and Workshops. There are additional tickets available for the Lecture only. There is also an optional lunch before the conference begins.
The workshop sessions aim to share experience and new developments from those who have delivered practically, and will offer you the chance to explore how your idea or project can grow into a sustainable business. Come to listen, come to talk, but above all come with a proposition that can be developed over the next 12 months and the RSA North West Fellows will help you develop it.
There are two workshops you can attend (both sessions are repeated):
- Commercially Successful – leading to sustainable organisations
- Responsible You, Wonderful You – contributing to sustainable communities

The Keep Calm initiative is supported by RSA North West, Manchester Metropolitan University, University of Manchester, Corridor Manchester and Business in the Community.
