We are pleased to announce that the 6th Responsible Management Education Research Conference themed “Multistakeholders Engagement for Agenda 2030: Individual and Organizational Collaboration to Address the Complexity of the SDGs” will take place on 29 September – 3 October 2019 at Jönköping International Business School.
CONFERENCE WEBSITE: https://ju.se/rmer
We invite you to participate in the 6th RME Research Conference - a forum intended to engage multiple stakeholders in a dialogue around Agenda 2030 and enhance further collaborations in education, research and business practices to advance the SDGs. The Conference is the place where new propositions, theories, experiential studies and practical innovations will be exposed to help address the following questions:
Who are the stakeholders and how to embrace their diversity? What types of leverages do they have? How can collaborations be encouraged? What are the inspiring stories? How to educate towards multistakeholder collaboration? How to help our students engage with other disciplines, other individuals and organizations towards achieving Agenda 2030 and beyond?
An exciting program will include diverse formats such as prominent keynote speakers from academia, and private, public and not-for profit sectors and youths, thematic panels and roundtables, parallel sessions on multistakeholder engagement for Agenda 2030, student posters, field visits, start-ups and other forms of interactive exchange.
The conference will be held in conjunction with the 7th PRME Chapter DACH Annual Meeting, PRME Nordic Chapter Meeting and Jönköping University Agenda 2030 Day, to which conference participants are invited to contribute.
The RME Research Conferences are by tradition open for co-design by PRME Working Groups, PRME Regional Chapters, PRME Champion Groups, other stakeholders, and research and practitioner communities from PRME Chapteres, Global Compact Local Networks and UN local offices, etc.
We invite you to contribute to the event by proposing conference topics, tracks and sessions that could contribute to the research agenda and learning innovations for multistakeholder engagement and Agenda 2030.
