About the Idea Forum Retreat
Between conferences and meetings and travel and reports and calls – When do you have time to think about the big issues in sustainability? How to tackle them? How to communicate them? How to collaborate with a small group of leaders not only passionate about sustainability but looking for the next step to get things done?
Exclusive for TSC Tier 1 and retailer members: TSC’s Idea Forum is a small, intimate group of change-makers interested in working collaboratively to identify, develop and implement solutions for the ever-changing landscape of sustainability. It is a place to build our leadership and explore opportunities for collective action on issues, trends, and solutions that just cannot be tackled alone. Together we can move the needle on sustainability issues, and it all starts with the TSC Idea Forum.
TSC Idea Forum Retreat is a time when the Idea Forum comes together in a beautiful setting to reflect, explore, imagine creative ideas for tackling some of the toughest sustainability issues we face and leverage our leadership roles to drive change. Deep in the Great Plains of North America, on an active apple orchard along the Missouri River Valley of Nebraska, we will disconnect from the daily distractions and plug into the solutions we can’t get to in our daily work routines. We hope you’ll join us this August for this in-person retreat where we will focus on defining the future of sustainability by:
- Exploring how to apply systems thinking to our biggest sustainability challenges,
- Reflecting upon, sharing and coming up with solutions for individual and organizational needs in driving action on key challenges, and
- Imagining and building the types of individual and collective action that we will take on in order to put our leadership skills to work and drive impact.
