Corporate Social Responsibility Congress
This congress focuses on making students aware of the fact organizations have a responsibility towards society. Questions such as "why do they have this responsibility", "how do they cope with it" and "what are pitfalls they have to look out for" will all be answered by different organizations. It's interesting for all students because it's useful to know why an organization operates the way it does as a corporate citizen.
