Activity: Talk or presentationLecture and oral contribution


As it is becoming clear that the world needs to be much more consequential in the fight against climate change, we need to know more about how organizational actors navigate in this fight. More actors are making commitments to become carbon neutral in the distant future, often a 2050 horizon, which imply they have to overcome pressure from short-term performance and go well beyond their habitual strategic time horizons. The symposium brings together experienced scholars discussing ideas for how we may study organizational actors as they engage in the fight against climate change and use materiality in their pursuit of a distant future in the present.
