Tenth Anniversary Conference
UK and Ireland PRME Chapter 10 years on: Reflecting, refreshing and re-envisioning
Our 10th Anniversary Conference aims to provide multiple opportunities for critical reflection on the impact that the Chapter, and UN PRME more widely, have had in promoting and embedding responsible management education over the past decade. Beyond a reflection on the past and present, the conference also seeks to encourage contributions on how to refresh and re-envision the work of PRME and RME more widely for the decade ahead. The PRME community in Ireland and the UK is marked by innovation in pedagogy and classroom practice, and the conference seeks to highlight this. But the PRME community now stretches well beyond those focused mainly on teaching and learning, and this conference also seeks to provide a platform to celebrate and engage with the many wider research programmes and traditions now recognised as intersecting with the PRME agenda. Likewise, innovative cross-sector and interdisciplinary partnerships broadly focused on the SDG agenda are also now thriving within the greater PRME community, and the conference organisers would welcome academics and practitioners willing to share their partnership journeys with a wider audience.
Our more detailed Call for Proposals expands on these questions and outlines the four proposed conference tracks: (1) Responsible Management Education (2) Sustainable for-profit and non-profit organisations (3) Environmental challenges (4) Emerging sustainability challenges for business schools.
Deadline for proposals: 25 April 2023, with confirmation of acceptance by 2 May 2023
Our colloquia and conferences are justifiably well-known for their friendly, open, supportive environments that nurture our community of responsible management scholars. So we very much look forward to your participation in these events. Delegate costs will be kept at a modest level, with all student delegates attending free of charge, to help enable maximum participation. Full conference details including delegate costs, accommodations options etc will be published during March.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in June.
