PM Fair | PMI BeNeLux PM Congress | Sustainability and Social Responsibility: Is everybody ready to make a change?

2021 PM Fair Sustainability and Social Responsibility

During the week of 4th until the 8th of October 2021, the 2021 PM Fair took place with great success!

A joint initiative with the participation of Luxembourg, The Netherlands and Belgium Chapters, the congress tackled the issue of “Sustainability and Social Responsibility”.

The environment where a project manager works is very dynamic and progressive. Society is evolving towards a situation where climate, sustainability and social responsibility are becoming more and more important. People are increasingly aware of these issues and want to do the right thing. Most companies are aware of the changing mindset in society and are trying to adapt to the changing situation, to rethink and reinvent themselves. And at a certain point of time, this will affect the way of dealing and managing different projects.

In this respect, the 2021 PM Fair asked participants a crucial question: ‘Is everybody ready to make a change?’

The aim of the congress was to understand whether companies and project managers have been affected by this global awareness in society. And what Project Managers can do to be one step ahead or how we can deal with this changing situation.
