JOURNAL OF GLOBAL RESPONSIBILITY SPECIAL ISSUE: Nurturing Responsibility: Connecting Business Practice, Education and Sustainability
The Journal of Global Responsibility recognises that tackling worldwide recession, rapid globalisation and the varied and complex challenges of ‘sustainability’ requires a systemic reorientation of business practice. The scale and depth of these challenges raises questions about the effectiveness of existing educational offerings, in preparing future managers, leaders and entrepreneurs to make these changes.
This call for papers invites contributions to explore the future horizons for engagement with ‘sustainability’ in HE business curricula and to showcase emerging research, leading practice and suggestions for future pathways. The aim of this Special Issue is to strengthen discussion and to encourage greater connectivity at the interface between sustainability imperatives and standard economic and management education. Submissions are welcome from the widest range of disciplinary, methodological and cultural perspectives.
Priority themes for the collection include:
- the need to reconcile sustainability issues and economic understanding within business education
- graduate skills and learning processes for sustainability education in business contexts
- the influence of market trends towards global corporate responsibility on HE business curricula
- ways to challenge existing curricula to provide globally responsible business education
The guest editors are Professor Daniella Tilbury, Director of Sustainability, and Dr Alex Ryan, Associate Director of Sustainability (Academic), at the University of Gloucestershire, UK.
