This PRME Chapter organises around four meetings a year that we welcome you to attend.
The PRME Chapter Brazil aims to amplify the movement of responsible management education in Brazil by expanding to include schools from the northeast and eastern regions of the country. Key challenges and goals are to develop research partnerships on corporate sustainability themes, to increase the number of signatories in the region, and to scale implementation. Engaging important actors in the public educational sector is an example of such activities.
Examples of PRME Chapter Brazil's activities include:
- Growing Sustainability Literacy Test participation in Brazil: Through efforts of PRME Chapter Brazil schools and coordination and outreach by the Chapter, Brazil became the country with the second highest number of respondents - 2,067 students. Schools ISAE and FEA/USP developed questions around the Brazilian sustainability context, and translated the website, respectively, while signatories committed to sending the online questionnaire to their students, in order to facilitate Brazilian student participation. The Sustainability Literacy Test measures the level of students' knowledge on sustainability. The online questionnaire has 70 questions – 50 on global knowledge and 20 on regional knowledge.
