Our 10th Anniversary

SensAbility - The WHU Impact Summit is Europe's largest student-led conference on social and sustainable business.

Ever since its debut in 2010, the event has been a unique platform for more than 250 international students, entrepreneurs, young professionals and investors.

Our diverse and exciting program includes inspirational speeches, hands-on workshops, a panel discussion, the pitch battle, and countless networking opportunities. Over the course of two unforgettable days, attendees from all over the world are inspired towards impactful economic behaviour and corporate social responsibility.
Our goal is to impact the dynamics of business today and in the long run.

We believe in combining business with responsibility towards people and the planet without paralysing the company.

Our Future, Our Challenge
Business with Purpose

Conference Theme of SensAbility 2020

With the current wave of environmental awareness, climate strikes and social startups, economy and politics are increasingly recognizing the urgency for impact-driven business. It is our generation‘s mission to commit ourselves to being an active part of this shift in order to save the future of our planet. Our Impact Summit offers a platform for exchange and mutual inspiration where we will be addressing the critical question of how business and impact can be reconciled, to show our participants concrete ways how they can take the first steps. At SensAbility, different personalities and opinions from all areas of life and work come together to talk about the overarching goal we all have: Making this world a better place.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Patagonia is an outdoor apparel company, which is recognized internationally for its environmental activism and donates 1% of sales annually to environmental organizations.
