Rio+20 3rd PRME Global Forum

On the afternoon of June 14th, the 3rd PRME Global Forum opening session was followed by an session titled Business Capabilities for Achieving Sustainable Development. The 3rd Global Forum for Responsible Management Education is the official platform for management-related higher education institutions at both the Rio+20 Corporate Sustainability Forum and the UN Conference on Sustainable Development – Rio+20. This platform underscores the critical need for increased adoption and action to advance responsible management education and leadership.

Higher education institutions have a unique role to spearhead this process by providing thought leadership and by training responsible leaders for the future we want. The plenary session was followed by roundtable discussions focused on the question: How does sustainable development affect management education?

The session titled Business Capabilities for Achieving Sustainable Development revealed current trends and potential pathways to achieve sustainable development. Global leaders identified some of the top priorities for the next twenty years and made the case for urgent change and collaboration necessary to achieve the future we want.
