Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to Riga to RISEBA International Week 2016 “BECOME ENGAGED AND MAKE AN IMPACT: Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability Across Disciplines”, which will take place at RISEBA University on 18-24 April 2016.

The ultimate goal of RISEBA International Week 2016 is to promote and enhance the integration of ethics, responsibility and sustainability (ERS) into the teaching, research and operational practice. Lectures, workshops, networking sessions and other events will be organised to help the students, faculty and staff better understand the nature of ERS, discuss the latest developments and find new ways to utilise the ERS in three key fields of studies:

Business & Economics

Media & Communications

Architecture and Design.

We are looking for guest lecturers who are ready to address the ERS related issues and share their academic and professional experience in their specific areas of expertise and interest.

Which ERS initiatives do have the impact?

What are the main drivers of ERS?

What are the barriers to ERS?

And after all, how can we prepare responsible professionals who are able to respond adequately to the needs and interests of all stakeholders and the society at large AND ULTIMATELY MAKE AN IMPACT?


We kindly ask you to fill in the application form, which is available here by 29 February 2016.
