#CSRshareDay is a 24-hour Twitter campaign where sustainability champions from around the world gather online to discuss and share the Corporate Social Responsibility actions and methods they have implemented to make their businesses and communities more sustainable. The campaign is organized by Positive Impact Events, a UK-based nonprofit set up in 2005 to provide education, resources and inspiration for the international sustainable event industry.
The LEED® Platinum certified Oregon Convention Center has been a prominent sponsor of #CSRshareDay since 2016. OCC sustainability coordinator Ryan Harvey and several members of the convention center’s senior team will host a live hour-long discussion on Monday, April 23rd from 9-10 a.m. PST on Twitter (@oregoncc).
The #CSRshareDay movement plays a pioneering role in a global sharing of wisdom, ideas, challenges, best practices, and case studies with sustainability experts from around the globe to reach the goal of having a sustainable events sector. Every host will explain how their company has worked towards the United Nation's Social Development Goals (SDGs), including work towards the goals of Responsible Consumption and Production and the creating of Sustainable Cities and Communities.
The aim of the campaign is to:
- Share the stories of people and organizations that are making a positive impact on sustainability in the world.
- Get more people talking about specific areas of sustainability that aren't always discussed.
- Connect people through the conversation of sustainability.
- Share best practices and creative ideas in order to inspire others!
The 2018 campaign hopes to reach 2,000,000 people worldwide. In 2017, the campaign came close to achieving this goal by reaching 1,601,391 people.
