How connecting with other professionals can help in the sustainability transformation of your organisation?
The shift towards a climate neutral and digital Europe will require businesses to transform their practices to become more sustainable. For SMEs, this means upskilling their professionals through vocational education and training to lead the way in sustainable business practices. This is where the CATALYST Network comes in.
What is Catalyst Network?
The CATALYST Network is a recently launched community of professionals and students that aims to connect individuals exploring and implementing sustainable business skills and practices. By exchanging ideas, knowledge, and best practices, members of the network can collaborate to achieve sustainability at personal, organizational, and systemic levels.
Why join the CATALYST Network?
Firstly, being part of the community allows individuals to build connections with like-minded professionals across Europe. The network is open to all professionals and students interested in sustainable transformation, whether they come from the public or private sector, or academia. Joining the CATALYST Network opens doors to collaboration, shared knowledge and expertise, and facilitates exchange of best practices.
The CATALYST Network offers unique benefits for those participating in the INSPIRE component – VET courses that upskill professionals in sustainable business practices. By connecting with other learners through the network, participants can mutually increase their knowledge and understanding of sustainability challenges.
For those benefiting from the ENABLE component, which provides mentorship support to SMEs and students for their sustainable development journey, joining the CATALYST Network offers opportunities to connect with other SMEs, research institutions and CATALYST project partners. Through this network, they can exchange ideas, learn from each other, and share good practices on how best to make their organizations more sustainable.
By joining the CATALYST Network, members receive exclusive access to events, workshops, speakers, and training materials. This access is shared within the network, allowing members to keep up to date with developments in sustainability practices and to learn from experts in sustainability transformation, all at early bird fees for paid events. The network also offers shared tools and supporting materials, enabling members to make the most of CATALYST services.
