6th Annual Conference of the UK & Ireland PRME Regional Chapter
July 8, 2019 - July 10, 2019
The 6th Annual Conference of the UK and Ireland PRME Regional Chapter will be hosted by Leeds University Business School 8th-10th July 2019. 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.
PRME is a global organization that works to promote responsible management education, in particular, business ethics and sustainability. The UK & Ireland Chapter (https://www.unprme.org.uk/) has around 75 Universities as members and many of these are represented at the annual conference (together with representatives from business and the third sector).
Keynote speakers will include industry and civil society speakers, reflecting on the challenges and opportunities localising the SDGs pose. Panels and workshops will feature social enterprises, businesses and sustainability specialists.
