PRME and oikos International Collaborate to Empower Sustainability Researchers

In an effort to foster innovation and collaboration in the realm of creative pedagogies, PRME and oikos International have partnered to host a new cohort of LEAP Researchers, an oikos program for the joint personal and professional development of early career researchers.

Comprising master's, doctoral, and postdoctoral researchers as well as educators specializing in sustainability, this cohort boasts a diverse representation, with 64 individuals hailing from 42 different nationalities. Selected for their commitment to advancing their understanding of creativity and pedagogy in the context of sustainable development, participants are poised to embark on an enriching journey of shared learning and collaboration.

The LEAP Research Cohort, designed to cultivate connections and facilitate joint learning, will undergo an intensive 8-month program facilitated by oikos International and the PRME Impactful Five (i5) project. Through monthly online sessions, participants will co-create their learning experiences, fostering a supportive environment for exploration and growth.

Central to the program's mission is the empowerment of early-career researchers in addressing pressing sustainability challenges within the realms of economics and management. According to surveys of past LEAP cohorts, many early-career researchers find it difficult to pursue innovative, out-of-the-box research addressing urgent sustainability challenges, especially in these fields. The strategic partnership with i5 equips researchers to be better prepared to tackle these challenges. Through the application of the i5 characteristics—joy, meaning, social interaction, active engagement and iteration—the researchers leave the program with a more holistic skill set, enabling them to explore innovative solutions to complex problems and ultimately fostering a sense of responsibility and commitment to responsible management research.

"Our aim is to inspire a new generation of leaders who are not only well-versed in understanding the deep connections of sustainable development but also equipped to spearhead transformative initiatives within their respective institutions," remarked Dr. Meredith Storey, Senior Manager of the i5 project.

Beyond individual skill development, the LEAP Research Cohort seeks to foster a community of changemakers, united in their dedication to embedding sustainability into the fabric of economic and business education. Participants will emerge from the program equipped not only with enhanced research capabilities but also with a network of like-minded individuals poised to drive positive change on a global scale.

As the cohort embarks on this transformative journey, the collaboration between PRME and oikos International stands as a testament to the power of partnership in advancing sustainability education and research. With this LEAP Researcher Cohort, a new chapter in the pursuit of sustainable development is set to unfold, driven by the passion and dedication of its diverse participants.
