2015 2nd PRME Meeting Nordic

Description

Date: 8-9 June 2015

Venue: Copenhagen Business School (CBS) , Copenhagen, Denmark

The PRME Chapter Nordic convened for the first time since becoming officially chartered in December 2014. Hosted by Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and arranged by PRME Chapter Secretariat Hanken School of Economics, the meeting coincided with the CBS arranged conference Sustainability in a Scandinavian Context, which created good synergies for the meeting. The PRME Chapter Meeting Nordic saw participants from 7 out of 9 of the Chapters member schools, and additionally was atteended by representatives of two other PRME members from the Nordic region. We hope to welcome these schools soon to becoming members of the regional PRME Chapter.

During the meeting the member schools presented the most important progress and developments that had occurred in 2014. The meeting also held a workshop on two concrete collaboration projects for the Nordic Chapter A) Closer collaboration with Global Compact Nordic Network B) A common collaborative MOOC or rather DOCC (distributed open collaborative course) were agreed upon. A timeline for both projects was created. The Chapter further agreed that an informal Nordic Chapter meeting should be arranged in Helsinki in December 2015, with a long-term plan to continue to arrange the PRME Chapter Nordic meetings in conjunction with the Global Compact Nordic Network meetings - also in December - to facilitate collaboration opportunities.
