Event description
What might Georgian’s future look like if we were able to achieve ‘Strong Sustainability’ by 2025?

About this Event

In collaboration with Georgian College’s Process Improvement Strategy and Analysis Team, the Centre of Changemaking and Social Innovation through SENCO will be hosting a co-creation workshop to look at how Georgian can support specific UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The goal is to explore new innovations to the Flourishing Business Model Canvas, a business modelling and strategic development tool used to shift communities and economies towards Strongly Sustainable (Flourishing) outcomes.

Based on backgrounds, participants will assume different stakeholder roles in a co-creative business modelling process to examine Georgian College in the context of a ‘Zero Waste’ institution. Participants will have the opportunity to practice discussing, understanding and exploring Georgian’s business model through this context. By modelling new and alternative relationships between stakeholders, participants can explore and co-create new business model scenarios that examine the actualization of ‘Zero Waste’ using strong sustainability, digital transformation and inclusion for benefits that impact people, planet and profit.

What is the Flourishing Business Canvas

The Flourishing Business Canvas is a visual design tool that embeds a common language to enable more effective collaboration by any group of stakeholders deemed relevant to designing the economic, social and environmental aspects of an organization’s business model. Through its common language the Flourishing Business Canvas enables an organization’s stakeholders to work together to sketch, prototype, design, improve, communicate, understand, measure, diagnose and most importantly tell stories about the economic, social and environmental aspects of their business model they deem to be important based on their chosen goals.
