PRME Champions Meeting bolsters collaboration and establishes emerging Champions projects

Following the 2016 UN Global Compact Leaders Summit, the first PRME Champions Meeting for 2016 took place at Fordham University in New York on Friday, 24 June. The purpose of this face-to-face meeting was to build stronger connections between the various participants, to discuss in detail emerging Champions projects and to agree on next steps and ways of working together.

There were around 40 participants from academia, business, Global Compact Office and partner organisations, with 21 out of 30 PRME Champion institutions represented at the meeting. The participants engaged in constructive round table discussions on specific projects. At the meeting, everybody had the chance to present their projects, get feedback from the rest of the group and collectively decide on concrete next steps and deliverables. Throughout the day, there was a feeling of enthusiasm, connectedness and collective action, which contributed to the project discussions.

In parallel to the meeting, the group of PRME Champion students who attended the Leaders Summit also met to connect with each other, reflect on the two days of the Summit and share their different educational experiences. The students briefly joined the Champions meeting and brought their invaluable perspective, which further inspired the project discussions.
