NRC Live Impact Challenge

5 March - 27 June 2019

All kinds of organisations in every kind of industry strive to use new, responsible forms of entrepreneurship – and succeed in doing so. They include sustainable food producers, climate-neutral construction companies, and manufacturers embracing the cradle-to-cradle (or circular) economy. 

The NRC Live Impact Challenge is organised by RSM Executive Education and NRC Live, and invites 100 change-makers from industry, government and NGOs to take part, in order to give them the knowledge, the inspiration and the network to make a positive difference.

100 days, 100 participants

The NRC Live Impact Challenge is a 100-day online programme from Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) that includes several peer review sessions, and two live events. The online modules give 100 participants the necessary skills and knowledge to initiate and implement sustainable innovations within their own organisations. 

The Challenge aims to inspire the 100 participants and offer them a new network for innovating within their organisation by contributing to one or more of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Becoming positive change leaders

There are only 100 places available. At the end of the programme, participants will become a 'Positive Change Leader' with a certificate from RSM. The best idea of the NRC Live Impact Challenge will: 

  • be published in NRC
  • receive a learning budget for RSM's Executive Education courses
  • experience the network and services of ImpactCity.
