Abstract

In this presentation, I will discuss the role that culture might play in addressing grand societal challenges. From a comparative perspective, extant research indicates that several facets of culture may be both a barrier and an opportunity toward sustainable development, from an organizational and societal point of view. Critically though, there is little consensus about how culture affects trajectories toward sustainable advancements. This, in part, is due to the complex nature of both culture and grand societal challenges. In addition, formal institutions may equally be relevant. Therefore, I argue that organizational and societal discourse are important to understand better the culture-institution linkages and how they relate to countries’ and companies’ safeguarding of sustainable development.
