The established PRME DACH Chapter, consisting of PRME signatories in German-speaking countries (Germany-Austria-Switzerland), was officially launched at the Conference on Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) for Germany, Switzerland and Austria, at MCI Management Center Innsbruck in February 2014, after two years of preparation.
Currently, more than 60 higher education institutions are part of the DACH Chapter, and many of them play an active role in the network.
The DACH Chapter is highly committed to provide PRME regional signatories with a forum to advance the Principles for Responsible Management Education, discuss issues of mutual interest and concern, as well as share and develop good practice and innovative approaches in Responsible Management Education (major key objective of the PRME Regional DACH Chapter). The PRME principles are at the core of the work of the PRME Chapter DACH, while the chapter is also shifting its focus to integrating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in research, teaching and outreach activities of its members and of the Chapter as a collective.
PRME Chapter DACH signatories strive to create an engaging and secure space for exchange and collaboration, foster trust and connection with each other, actively engage in debate, are committed to joint progress as well as to innovation, new and critical thinking, disruptive processes and toward fostering sustainability learning and processes as a whole.
The mission of the Chapter is to provide thought and action leadership on the future of corporations and of responsible management education in the context of the UN sustainable development agenda.
