PRME Chapter Brazil holds 14th PRME Chapter Meeting Brazil, developing project goals for the next two years

(Sao Paulo, 12 April 2016) – The PRME Chapter Brazil held its 14th PRME Chapter Meeting Brazil on 12 April 2016 at Insper in Sao Paulo, Brazil. 

During the meeting, the coordinator of sustainability and PRME focal point at Insper, Priscila Claro, presented on how sustainability is treated at Insper, as well as the institution's facilities. Similarly, Ana Carolina from EAESP/FGV shared the GVCes methodology, the institution’s new sustainability teaching methodology, with the group.

Additionally, the communication coordinator of Instituto Trata Brazil, Rubens Filho, presented the work of his organization. The purpose of the presentation was to find synergies between the work of the Institute and the PRME Chapter. Later, the group of institutions that will work with the sanitation research project will identify these partnership opportunities.

One of the developers of research for the Sustainability Literacy Test, Aurelien Decamps of Kedge Business School, also attended the meeting via Skype to provide details from the second phase of the test. During this call, a group of institutions was formed (FEA | SENAI / PR | UTFPR | Insper | ISAE) that will set some criteria for the production of new Brazilian questions. This information will be shared with the group in the future.

Finally, working groups at the meeting selected four projects that will guide PRME Chapter Brazil’s work for the next two years.  These include the development of workshops to disseminate information on the SDGs, the development of questions for the Sustainability Literacy Test, the creation of long-term indicators to incorporate sustainability in business management and research development about sanitation in Latin America.

The next PRME Chapter Meeting Brazil will be held on 1 September 2016 at Fundacao Instituto de Administracao in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
