Redefining Accounting for Tomorrow: Accounting for a Better World


Webinar with Emeritus Professor Garry Carnegie (RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia)

The ISCAP/IPP Accounting Webinar ‘Redefining Accounting for Tomorrow: Accounting for a Better World’ with Emeritus Professor Garry Carnegie (RMIT University), held on the 16th December 2021, gathered in excess of 70 participants, drawn from a total of 11 countries, namely: Australia, Czech Republic, England, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Japan, Portugal, Poland, Spain and Sweden. 

The international “ISCAP/IPP Accounting Webinar Series, convened by Cláudia Teixeira, Adjunct Professor at ISCAP/IPP, is supported by the Public Relations Office (GCRP) and the Centre for Social and Organizational Studies of P.Porto (CEOS.PP).    

Given the importance of the topic and the worldwide engagement of academics and IFAC (see below), among others, ISCAP/IPP is most grateful to Professor Garry Carnegie for his insightful and engaging presentation and for the opportunity to participate in this important international discussion and debate. 

Appreciation is expressed to everyone who participated in the Webinar, in particular, the welcomed participation of the Ordem dos Contabilistas Certificados (i.e., Portuguese Association of Chartered Accountants). 

Once again, a lively and thoughtful international discussion and debate occurred and encouraged the perspective of accounting as technical, social and moral practice in order to enable accounting to help create a better world by means of the flourishing of organisations, people and nature (Carnegie, Parker and Tsahuridu, 2020, 2021).  

And, as stated by Carnegie (2021) in a recent publication in the journal, Accounting Education, “inculcating a broader, more meaningful definition of accounting has ‘game-changing’ prospects. It would contribute to an enhanced understanding of the effects of accounting emergence and change around the globe. This project offers considerable prospects for accounting to help in shaping a better world for all humans and non-humans. This is not a risk; let us seize this opportunity”.
