    Orange ASEAN Factory Jakarta -

    Sustainable Urban Development (2/2)

    Jakarta, 9th of October - 27th of October 2017

    With more and more people settling down in cities, urban sustainability requires us to take a closer look at the relationship of cities with their surroundings. This implies that we need to think about the reduction of the use of non-renewable resources, plan the possibilities for handling waste, create a healthy living environment and support stronger social structures while meeting our economic needs in cities that are becoming more high tech and ‘smart’.

     

    Work together in dedicated teams to develop concrete business cases and strategies on reducing resources and waste, on setting up sustainable supply chains or on introducing sustainable products and services in the region. Present the results in front of your clients and other stakeholders.

     

    Apply before 10th of August 2017.
