British-Romanian Chamber of Commerce (BRCC) together with RebelDot are delighted to invite you to our joint event – Building Resilience for Sustainable Growth, taking place on the 21st of September at the RebelDot Headquarters, in Cluj-Napoca, starting with 4 p.m.

BRCC sustainable initiatives continue in Cluj, inviting leaders and organisations to express their experience and debate on sustainability principles and effective ways to address and implementing them in their organisations.

The current era is increasingly defined by the interplay of complex disruptions, with their disparate origins and long-term consequences.

Facing a world of continuous, overlapping disruptions, leaders are recognizing resilience as the imperative condition for securing a sustainable, inclusive future.

To foster resilience for sustainable, inclusive growth, we need to address the strategic resilience areas, including climate, supply chains, technology, communities, education, and constructions. All are subject to continual change and disruption. We must manage them as never before if we are to grow and prosper sustainably.
