CALLS FOR PAPERS
Educating for Deep Transformation: Business Schools’ contribution to a Greener, Healthier and Fairer Society
19th June 2024 – Doctoral Colloquium
20th-21st June 2024 - Conference and Chapter AGM
Location: University of Exeter Business School
We are delighted to invite your proposals for contributions to our June 2024 annual conference and/or doctoral colloquium.
Last year the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) Ireland and UK Chapter reflected on 10 years of activity in the face of a planetary climate crisis. There was much to celebrate, but now we seek to build on the reflections of 2023 and look ahead to set an agenda for the next 10 years.
The Tenth Anniversary conference made clear that PRME collaborators must continue to do three things to be a force for change. We must criticise current practices where they fall short of the horizon provided by moral and ethical norms. We must energise individuals and communities, so they are motivated and equipped to influence others as change agents. Most significantly, we must imagine our relation to the world in ways that break with current management orthodoxy, by re-instituting the ends that economies must serve. The current generation of educators carries the historic responsibility for developing the skills, sensibilities, strategies and systems that discipline profit seeking to the greater stories of ecological, social and spiritual significance.
This year the conference is hosted by The University of Exeter, which is championing a Greener, Healthier and Fairer world as part of its 2030 Strategy. The conference organisers invite academics, practitioners from for-profit and non-profit organisations and post-graduate students to submit abstracts (proposals for conference papers) from relevant pedagogical, research and/or practitioner perspectives, as well as proposals for interactive workshops, within the scope of three tracks: Greener, Healthier, Fairer.
Full Calls for both the Conference and Colloquium can be found below. A conference website and delegate booking information will be published during February.
Doctoral Colloquium: Tuesday 12 March 2024
Conference: Tuesday 19th March 2024
We look forward to your many contributions and to welcoming you to Exeter in June 2024.
