PRME Chapter UK & Ireland

Please see the PRME UK and Ireland website to find out more about the chapter.

The PRME UK and Ireland Chapter works with higher education institutions and related bodies to support the integration of the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) in the UK and Ireland.

For a summary of the Chapter's initiatives please visit the Main Activities page.

In 2018, the Chapter established 7 local networks across the UK and Ireland for member institutions to collaborate, share best practice, engage with and develop the PRME Principles and Sustainable Development Goals at a more localised level. The local networks offer a forum to promote PRME, network and participate with local events, themed webinars and other activities.

Find our more about our local networks here.

The Foundation Meeting of the PRME UK and Ireland chapter was held on 10 May 2013 at Aston Business School.

The 4th UK and Ireland PRME Chapter Annual Conference was held at Newcastle Business School, Northumbria University 26th and 27th June 2017. As 2017 was PRME’s 10th Anniversary year, the theme of the conference was “Envisioning the Future of Responsible Management Education in the era of the Sustainable Development Goals”.

The 5th UK and Ireland PRME Chapter Annual Conference was held at Queen Mary, University of London under the theme of ‘Leaving no one behind' - inclusive responsible management education in an era of precarity’.

The 6th UK and Ireland PRME Chapter Annual Conference was hosted by Leeds University Business School in July 2019. The conference theme directly engaged with PRME's vision “to realise the Sustainable Development Goals through responsible management education”, and echoed the UN Global Compact’s call for “Making Global Goals Local Business”.

In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic led to the cancellation of the planned conference at the University of Lincoln in the English Midlands. However, the Chapter Steering Committee hosted an alternative half day online event exploring the impact of the pandemic on responsible management education.

The 7th UK and Ireland PRME Chapter Annual Conference and AGM was held at University of Lincoln in June 2021. After a two year break, the UK and Ireland PRME community met online for the 7th annual conference focused on the theme: Crises and the Re-thinking of Responsibility. For the first time the Chapter also offered a Doctoral Colloquium, providing doctoral students across the Chapter membership an opportunity to meet, receive peer and expert panel feedback on their work and make early connections within the wider sustainability and responsibility academic community.

The 8th UK and Ireland PRME Chapter Annual Conference was hosted by Hull University ran from June 28th to June 29th 2022 and was preceded by a Doctoral Colloquium on the 27th June. The conference theme was 'The UN's Decade of Action: driving it, slowing it or playing catch up?'

The 9th UK and Ireland PRME Chapter Annual Conference brought the chapter back to Aston University on the 26th to 28th June 2023, where the foundation meeting was held 10 years prior. The conference theme was "Reflecting, refreshing, and re-envisioning" and celebrated 10 years of the chapter.
