PRME Chapter CEE

Description

Background

Given the call for creation of PRME Chapters endorsed by the PRME community at the 3rd PRME Global Forum in Rio de Janeiro in 2012, with the aim to support and advance the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) within particular geographic and cultural contexts, and the increasing launch of regional PRME Chapters that have proved to be a useful outlet for closer regional collaboration, CEEMAN – the International Association for Management Development in Dynamic Societies, -a PRME Steering Committee member- has decided, in consultation with the PRME Secretariat, to help lead -along with PRME signatories in the region- the creation of a PRME Chapter for the Central and Eastern Europe region.

During 2015, PRME signatories in the region were engaged informally at the 2015 PRME Global Forum to explore this idea, and more formally, by a letter of proposal inviting them to support the establishment of the Chapter and attend the 23rd CEEMAN Annual Conference in Almaty on 23-26 September to discuss it. Prof. Irina Sennikova, Rector of RISEBA University, Latvia and Vice-President of CEEMAN, offered to host the PRME Chapter Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) Secretariat at her institution for the time being.

The 1st PRME Chapter Meeting CEE(1) took place at RISEBA, Latvia in conjunction with the Conference titled ‘Become Engaged and Make an Impact: Ethics , Responsibility and Sustainability Across Disciplines’ on 18 and 19 April 2016, where the PRME Chapter CEE was officially launched as an established PRME Chapter and agree on specific future activities.

The PRME Chapter CEE is a regional platform for dialogue, collaboration and collective action within the CEE region to further advance Responsible Management Education (RME) and sustainable development in support of broader UN goals. The main aim of the PRME Chapter CEE is to offer more visibility and inspire a stronger voice for PRME signatories in the region by providing them with a network that supports the PRME initiative and RME movement. The PRME Chapter CEE offers such support by highlighting good practices, offering a means to exchange ideas and experiences, and encouraging collaboration in the CEE region.
