Why CSKC was interested to join the Go Green Project

The fight with climate change is and will continue to be one of the main priorities for the EU in the coming years.Regardless of the criticism that EU is too focused on the green deal and the undertaken measures are too anticipatory, compared to the rest of the world, this priority will always remain a keystone of the European policy. However, what is more important is how and to what extent business perceives the goals of sustainable development as own.

It is clear to us that whatever the level of corporate social responsibility of a business is, its behavior will always be dominated by the pursuit of profit.


What new from the Project XD Media Hub

One month ago, led by the University of DEUSTO, we completed one of the expected results of Project XD Media Hub, namely the Competence Self-assessment Tool. It is a questionnaire with which entrepreneurs and managers working in the media and creative industries can measure and optimize their skill set and knowledge. Anyone who has the patience to take this approximately 15 minute test will receive a quantitative assessment of the knowledge and skills required to work and/or do business in these industries. Undoubtedly, the final figure gives a synthetic answer about the level of measured competencies, although more important is the self-assessment process itself.
