Eduardo Costa distinguished at Role to Play awards
The award was delivered during the Nova SBE Sustainability Journey and the Role to Play Awards. These are an honorable celebration that Nova SBE launched for the first time this year, to community members who reflect Nova SBE's mission and strategy, to be an active agent in contributing to the SDG’s.
These awards are the materialization of every contribution that empowers the school’s positive impact. They are named after the Nova SBE Role to Play platform, which presents every project, initiative, and opportunity the school actively works on to achieve a more collaborative, inclusive, and sustainable social and economic reality.
After this gleeful celebratory moment, the second edition of the Nova SBE Role to Play Awards is already being prepared by establishing an official regulation and launching open applications.
