The 9th & 10th of November 2017, over 40 deans and representatives of Benelux and France business schools, universities and their stakeholders, gathered together to endorse the creation of a France/Benelux PRME chapter. This Chapter will focus upon furthering sustainability within the educational sector through collaborative initiatives and sharing best practices.
This community is dedicated to educational and business changes toward a sustainable society under the umbrella of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), an initiative of the UN Global Compact.
The PRME France BeNeLux chapter meets at least 1x per year. In these Chapter meetings, best practices are shared, guest speakers are invited to inspire and develop knowledge of participants further, and most importantly, collaboration is created through projects that the chapter has chosen to focus on.
In 2019, the Chapter chose to focus on analyzing existing Sustainability Assessment Tools, to provide some recommendations for Higher Education Institutions, and potentially, if a need is identified, create a PRME Sustainability Assessment Tool.
Other projects have also been discussed and will be the focus in upcoming years.
