PRME Chapter Poland

The Polish Chapter of PRME (PC PRME) officially started its activities in February 2021 (talks and preparations for its establishment started already in 2020). Its Steering Commitee is composed of the scientists representing all major universities in the country, some of which are institutional members of PRME.

Members of both the Commitee and Scientific (Advisory) Board are eminent researchers and academic teachers, most of them have numerous scientific and organizational achievements in studying and promoting the issues of sustainable development and corporate social responsibility. Among them there are economists, chemists, engineers, environmental or agribusiness specialists.

The goal of the PC PRME’s activities is to promote among students, but also in the entire academic community, the knowledge on the importance of acting and thinking in terms of the common good (even at a basic level - in everyday choices), especially when it comes to environmental protection. We also highlight the value of shaping the awareness of how much depends on our individual efforts and cooperation both within the space of individual universities as well as between universities and in the wider, i.e. international formula. PC PRME members also aim to convince the authorities of their home institutions to support and undertake various actions in the area of corporate social responsibility, sustainable development (in particular - ecology), as well as to include related content in the educational curricula and projects (also didactic) realized by the academic institutions they personally represent.

The abundance of initiatives of Polish HEIs on the fields of social and ecological responsibility - mainly the universities of economy and business represented by Polish Chapter PRME Steering Committee's members - was well reflected in the first on-line conference organised in March 2021. You can see more details on the programme of the event here

Poland has always been in the very heart of Europe: mentally, spiritually, politically and socially. Not as an empire covering in mid. XVII century almost 1 mln square km (equivalent to ca. 1/4 of today's EU territory), but mainly as a first European democracy and really multicultural country. In spite of tough, painfull history and the fact that Poland broke free from Soviet occupation only 32 years ago, Polish people have always had open minds, entrepreneurial nature and active souls „loving freedom”.

Thanks to that, although ideas of social and ecological responsiblity were flourishing firstly in West European countries, we are not lagging behind. This is reflected in the active involvement of Polish universities in a wide range of activities related to the implementation of the Social Development Goals - through both bottom-up initiatives and those created and supported by academic authorities.

The number of projects, programs and actions in this area is enormous, and here we will be able to show only a part of them. Polish universities prepare and publish reports showing their engagement in practical implementation of sustainability principles and educating young generations in the spirit of responsibility for social and natural environment (some of them can be found in the "Resources" tab). Some activities are undertaken on a national and intercollegiate level. One of the most important is the activity of the Working group for social responsibility of HEIs" established in 2017. This body operates at the Team for Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility, an auxiliary body of the Minister of Funds and Regional Policy, which provides a platform for cooperation of the entire government administration with business representatives and socio-economic partners.

The purpose of the Working Group is to disseminate the principles of the university's social responsibility, which were defined by the academic community in the Declaration of Social Responsibility of Universities (for more info: https://www.krasp.org.pl/resou.... )

The Declaration constitutes a voluntary commitment of colleges and universities to promote the idea of sustainable development and social responsibility in their educational programmes and managerial and organisational solutions.It entails strategic and systemic approach to managing a university, building cooperation and dialogue with stakeholders, which contributes to:

  • sustainable development,
  • shaping the values and attitudes of civil society,
  • supporting academic values and creating new ideas,
  • maintenance and development of scientific and didactic competences influencing the effectiveness of activity and innovativeness.

The abundance of initiatives of Polish HEIs - mainly the universities of economy and business represented by Polish Chapter PRME Steering Committee's members - was well reflected in the first on-line conference organised in March 2021. You can see more details on the programme of the event here:
