PRME Regional Chapter UK and Ireland, 6th Annual Conference

Date 8 July 2019 09:00 - 10 July 2019 17:00
Venue Leeds University Business School

The 6th Annual Conference of the UK and Ireland PRME Regional Chapter will be hosted by Leeds University Business School. This year’s conference theme directly engages with PRME's vision “to realise the Sustainable Development Goals through responsible management education”, and echoes the UN Global Compact’s call for “Making Global Goals Local Business”. 

We challenge delegates to consider how we can all contribute to realising the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through our education, research, campus and community activities – making global goals local.

Higher Education Institutions are uniquely placed to address the SDGs, with an opportunity not only to develop the knowledge and research necessary to tackle the problems (e.g., SDG 1: no poverty), but also to inspire and educate our students to tackle these issues in their future careers (SDG 4: quality education), and; to play an active role within our communities to reduce the environmental impact of our campuses or services (e.g., SDG 12: responsible consumption and production) and to partner with the community to work towards the goals locally (e.g., SDG 11: sustainable cities and communities).

The conference aims to showcase teaching innovations and educational approaches used to engage students in the SDGs and to promote responsible management education more broadly. Research informs teaching, business practice and policy. We also welcome submissions sharing current research and outcomes relating to SDGs.
