At this point, we have a Steering Committee leading the design, launch, and implementation of the Strategic Plan 2022-2025 and aiming to live up to any PRME’s Regional Chapter key objectives:

• Increase the visibility of PRME and its signatories in Iberia

• Engage all PRME Signatories and provide a platform for dialogue, learning, and action on responsible management and leadership education

• Adapt the Six Principles of PRME into the local context and develop and promote activities linked to the Principles

• Mainstream the SDG in the curriculum, research, and external engagement activities

•Promote in-depth understanding of the HEI Case to the SDG, leading to its explicit reference in Signatories’ reporting and communication pieces;

•Organize an annual general meeting open to all Chapter members to discuss the strategic direction and development of the Chapter, as well as organize additional activities on substantial issues for PRME and Chapter Iberia in particular;

•Promote and encourage cross-chapter knowledge exchange;

•Contribute to the PRME Annual Report by regularly updating ChapterIberia’ss webpage with an outlook of the year;

•Develop a SIP Report of PRME Chapter Iberia.


2021

Details of main activities upon the reactivation

•Launch of a Chapter Iberia’s survey to all signatories to understand further their perceptions of what a PRME Chapter mean, how it would be useful in their sustainability roadmap, and whether they would be willing to collaborate.

•Analysis of survey data and development of a report, which has been presented to the Steering Committee and PRME’s board.

•Presentation of this survey methodology for the other Chapters, aiming for their replication.

•Further comprehension of the global context, and the common language of “decade of action”, “build back better” and “no one left behind”, the ESG criteria and the role to play of HEIs by deep diving in PRME’s Blueprint and SDSN’s Accelerating Guide.

•Development of a Strategic Plan document, which has been shared within the Steering Committee and discussed in an open meeting.

Survey to signatories, main conclusions

40% response rate
•Integration of SDGs and PRME seems to be a core priority, yet HEIs still lag in terms of effective actions

•Not all HEIs are at the same level of progress on what concerns PRME and the SDGs across different dimensions: school positioning, community awareness, local community engagement, SDG integration across curriculum and research; report and accountability;

•It is not an usual practice for signatories to map SDG-relation of curriculum, research and partnerships.

•High expectation that the Chapter becomes a platform for dialogue and sharing of best practices, inspiring each other to follow through


As an Emerging Chapter without election or appointment processes in place, we defined a democratic procedure as the way forward. Each member showed interest in the various existing or new roles they proposed and then voted anonymously. Chapter Iberia intends to follow through with this process.

Do you have doubts about what PRME Chapter Iberia is and how your School can benefit from engaging with us?

Do you want to integrate the SDG Agenda across your institution but do not know where to start? Or perhaps you have doubts about one particular aspect?

Do you want to share one of your best practices with the Iberian signatories?
