About

Purpose

PRME Global Students (PGS) is a global platform for fruitful and creative collaboration, collective reflection, and joyful interactions between and beyond student organizations in the realm of responsible management education and sustainable development.

Student initiatives are influential drivers of change on campus, and all of our movements make a critical statement for the future we imagine. After every purposeful action, our voices get louder, and we increasingly move into the spotlight within and beyond our schools. But we cannot do all this work alone. And we are not alone.

The PGS Portfolio is composed of several projects and ways to get involved:

  1. PGS Careers
  2. Student Ambassador Program
  3. PGS Talks
  4. PGS Newsletter – Sign up here!
  5. Social Media

Each project is currently coordinated by one or two PGS Regional Leaders who lead their global taskforces that together are comprised of 42 students from 18 different countries. Please check all PGS Global Taskforce members here.

How We Engage

PGS Careers

PGS Careers aims to develop initiatives to improve the employability skills of PGS participants, connecting them to potential mentors and employees that can be beneficial to their careers.

The current program is the Mentorship Program. PGS Careers will provide PRME students the opportunities to converse with mentors, improving their employability skills and helping them to have a clearer sense of career plans. When confirmed to attend this program, students will be paired with a mentor and can attend the group mentorship online. Mentors are experts in SDGs-related areas, they might be from schools, enterprises, NGOs, etc. Students can get career advice from mentors and also meet friends who are also passionate about promoting sustainable development globally. Apart from that, students can also join sessions related to SDGs to have a better understanding of sustainability and responsible management. In the future, more information related to careers will be offered to connect students with companies and job opportunities.

PGS Careers will keep operating careers-related programs beneficial to participants in our community. Empowering students, linking them with experienced talents and opportunities, and leading them to a bright future!

PGS Talks

For us to form deeper connections and make our mark in this world, we must learn how to speak up, listen, and act. PGS's vision is to empower students all over the globe and to help increase their local and international connections. PGS Talks is where those visions come alive.

All the events created by PGS Talks embody the three pillars of PGS: Awareness, Advocacy, and Collective Action. Through our events, we plan to advocate for and spread awareness of the social and environmental issues that PRME aims to address. We seek every opportunity to provide students with a platform to speak, because we know their ability to think critically and inspire, and this demographic is often underrepresented. Unity emerges as people take the time to understand and sharpen one another, and PGS Talks enables this exchange. As a result, our events allow students, professionals, and organizations of various backgrounds to collaborate in solving the world’s most pressing issues.

PGS Ambassador Program

Empowering students through learning opportunities on responsible management, sustainability, and sustainable goals — this is the Ambassador’s Program! We aim to prepare a selected and diversified group of students in the advancement of the SDG’s so that in the future they may implement systemic changes within their environments. Thus, our goal is to bring international students together around sustainability and SDGs-focused topics to inspire and empower them. To accomplish this, the program creates spaces for project development through working groups where the students, equipped with knowledge, tools, and skills, can be responsible leaders. We believe that our Ambassadors can bring value to their respective student organizations, universities and communities, while keeping in touch with our taskforce, other Ambassadors, and guest speakers. Each program has a 10-week duration focusing on one region. Previous regions include Latin America and France-Benelux. However, this description does not completely resume our Ambassadors’ profiles: they are from +20 different nationalities, which enriches the program even more. There is space for acculturation throughout the program, which is structured in sessions with guest speakers who master some of the most important topics for that region. Behind these facts, there is a wonderful taskforce that works to provide an amazing experience to students and that is always open for hearing from the PGS community! The PGS Ambassador Program is a unique learning opportunity for everyone, whether they are students, taskforce members, guest speakers, and more!

PGS Newsletter

The PGS Newsletter is a monthly online publication where subscribers receive information about our global student network, including:

  • impactful actions by student organizations across the globe

  • best practices toward sustainability by students worldwide

  • jobs, internships, scholarships, and other opportunities

  • and more!

The Taskforce will be responsible for aggregating and editing the materials received from PGS contributors as well as formatting and launching the Newsletter every two months.

Social Media

What better way to connect students and young people all over the world together and have purposeful interactions, than with social media accounts dedicated to responsible management and sustainability? PGS Social Media task force operates on 3 platforms: Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram, with a growing audience of about 1,000 student followers from all over the world. We are here to promote the presence of PGS and young people who care about responsible management education, by working alongside all other taskforces in bringing out the latest sustainability news, programs, and activities.

Responsible and sustainable management is interesting, challenging and exciting! That is why we operate to keep students and young people well involved in every step of PGS journey of advocating responsible innovation and empowerment. We believe that great changes can be made with collectible small actions. With just a click, a like, a share, a quick comment, at any time in the day, anywhere and on any device, you are already contributing to the movement of responsibility and sustainability. Utilizing the wonder of social media, we are building a community of young people who care deeply about the current social, ecological problems and about making the world a better place. We as admins and content creators are always on the watch out for the latest transformation and hot topic, as well as the latest activities and opportunities that are economically, socially and ecologically beneficial. We want to keep ourselves and the audience updated and inspired, by being a trustful, timely interactive purposeful social platform. So, (as always) follow us now on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram under PRME Global Students!

Along with promoting various projects from other PGS task forces, we run PGS social media platforms Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram with informative, educational and interactive content. Some of our weekly topics are:

  • Sustainability flash news

  • Responsible management 101

  • Sustainability knowledge trivia

  • Sustainable projects shout-out

We constantly interact with our audience, read their comments, and reply to any questions they have.
