About the Humanistic Management Network Austria Chapter
The Humanistic Management Network (HMN) Austria Chapter was announced formally on 5th November during the first Austria Chapter session of the Annual Humanistic Management Conference which took place globally online in 2020. It coincided on one hand with the Covid pandemic, which showed again systemic weaknesses of our dominant economic paradigm.
It became clear one more time, that our creativity, many collective efforts and systemic changes are urgently needed to foster socio-economic resilience. This is why the Austrian Chapter cooperated intensively from the beginning with the international, inter- and transdisciplinary team of researchers around MaRei.ie, the SFI Centre for Energy, Climate and Marine, Environmental Research Institute, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland. Its profound reflections on “Deep Institutional Innovation for Sustainability and Human Development” (DIIS) became the initial impulse also for the Austrian Chapter. Another source of our collaboration are strong contacts to the seat of the United Nations in vienna, to be seen in our strong support for the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We are confident that – guided by the vision and philosophy of the parent HMN Global Network – and with the support of many other ‘humanistic management’ friends, we are becoming a dynamic and solid net for “human centered” management and development; a network, renowned in a wider community for creating active knitting points between inspiring people around a shared moving vision. We invite you to join our energy, it is being often renewed by inspiring individuals!
