The GRONEN conference is taking place on May 31-June 2 at the Amsterdam Business School University of Amsterdam. The Group for Research on Organizations and the Natural Environment (GRONEN) is an open and international network of engaged scholars focused on innovative thinking in order to generate transformative ways of protecting the natural environment and contributing to societal progress in a world of rapid, complex and non-linear environmental change.
The conference is largely an on-site event, but we have hybridized three fantastic sessions to make some elements of the conference accessible to a broader audience. During these sessions, online participants will be able to actively contribute. Please register for these events following the instructions below.
