Session III: Innovation in Practice: Integrating (Corporate) Sustainability into Education, Research, Business Model and Campus Life
Session description: Once a Higher Education Institution starts to integrate the values of the UN Global Compact and PRME, challenges and opportunities arise around how to adapt its core business model, teaching methods, research, and campus practices. This session will highlight inspirational examples as well as resources and tools for successful implementation of the Principles.
Building on the outcomes from Session 1 & 2, participants will have the opportunity to select a focused table discussion on a specific dimension of individual school activity (e.g., faculty development, curriculum, research, pedagogy), with the goal of identifying ideas for individual school action, needed resources and support, and specific action steps that could enable this internal incentive to become a driver for responsible management education?
The main questions of Session 3: What are the challenges, opportunities, and successes by individual schools to (further) implement responsible management education? How can PRME help in this process?
- Question 1: What are the solutions/activities that individual schools have used (or can use) to implement responsible management education?
- Question 2: What assets, leverage points, and capabilities of PRME and other partnerships and actors (e.g. governments, companies, others) can be tapped?
- Question 3: What action plans are you prepared to take as an individual, in your organization, and what could PRME do to support your initiative?
