Contributing to the UN Conference on Climate Change (COP15) in December 2009, Copenhagen Business School will host an international conference on sustainable leadership and climate change in partnership with the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME)Secretariat. At the conference, academics, practitioners, policy-makers and students, will discuss how business schools can help solve the climate crisis through new educational approaches, sustainable leadership, innovative business models and new forms of partnerships. Today, climate change is a business reality and represents a clear and unprecedented challenge for human society. Yet, the updating of management education to the challenges and opportunities for business to address restructuring towards a low carbon economy has hardly started. The conference is intended as a first building block in the reform of management education and research in this area. It aims at formulating the commitment of PRME concerning climate change and solutions, and focuses on the role of education and research of business schools in providing society with the necessary knowledge and future managers to overcome such challenges through sustainability-related research and integration of sustainability issues into core curriculum in the education of society’s future leaders. Copenhagen Business School is inviting faculty members and Centers of PRME signatory institutions, as well as other scholars and Centers striving to meet the challenges of climate change to this International Conference.
