About this blog

What is PRiMEtime?
PRiMEtime brings together and shares best practices on how to mainstream sustainability and responsible leadership into management education globally. The blog will serve as a platform to share and discuss inspirational activities that promote the development of responsible leaders.

What does PRiMEtime cover?
The blog will feature examples from around the world and will include both success stories and lessons learned. Posts will cover a wide variety of activities, ranging from efforts to embed sustainability and responsible leadership into curricula, student led initiatives, and the outcomes of partnerships with business, NGOs and other schools. The blog will also highlight the often forgotten “i” in PRME, by:

  • Representing our INTERNATIONAL network through a growing collection of examples from across the globe,
  • Exploring INNOVATIVE ideas that are being tested in management education,
  • Taking an INTERDISCIPLINARY approach by both looking across the business school environment and learning from other industries and disciplines,
  • Featuring INDIVIDUAL change makers who have transformed their institutions from within,
  • Focusing on IMPLEMENTATION through practical examples, from lessons learned through “failure” to inspirational examples, and
  • INSPIRING business schools to get more involved in mainstreaming responsible management education.

Why was PRiMEtime created?
PRiMEtime is a joint initiative between author and sustainability expert Giselle Weybrecht and the Secretariat of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), an initiative of the United Nations Global Compact. Giselle came up with the idea in August 2011 to showcase ways that educational institutions were putting the Principles into practice. At a meeting at the PRME Secretariat we discussed how there are, on one hand, many universities around the world testing out some really interesting and innovative ideas that others could learn from and, on the other hand, many others that are interested in these issues but are not sure where to start. We wanted to create an interactive space to gather, share, and discuss these issues, and PRiMEtime was born.
