A future based upon values will only be possible when the concepts of sustainability are embedded within education. Increasingly, Brazilian and global educational institutions are preparing managers to act personally and professionally responsible in a dynamic marketplace.
In preparation for the Rio+20 Conference in 2012, ISAE/FGV and the Consejo Latino-americano de Escuela de Administración (CLADEA) will hold an International Meeting on Education and Sustainability in Curitiba, Brazil.
The event is co-sponsored by PRME and aims to foster the exchange of experiences among educational institutions of various countries that seek to promote awareness of the relationship between education and the sustainability of the planet, as well as the formation of a critical mass for a new standard of civilization. Other expected outcomes include the integration of the work of these educational institutions with participant companies of the UN Global Compact.
