PRME Chapter MENA 2022 Conference



DMU Dubai has joined the  Regional Chapter of PRME (a UN Global Compact Initiative) and together have established the 9th MENA PRME MENA Regional Forum and Conference ‘Partnership for Change’ that will be hosted at the DMU Dubai Campus, online and at the UK Pavilion Expo 2020.

The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) is a United Nations-supported initiative founded in 2007. 

PRME’s vision is to create a global movement and drive thought leadership on responsible management education. PRME’s mission is to transform management education and develop the responsible decision-makers of tomorrow to advance sustainable development. Working through Six Principles, PRME engages business and management schools to ensure they provide future leaders with the skills needed to balance economic and sustainability goals, while drawing attention to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aligning academic institutions with the work of the UN Global Compact.

The Conference and Forum aim to connect networks and ideas to create real change through SDG partnerships.  Ahead of COP28, businesses are increasingly expected to collaborate with other institutions from public, private, education and non-governmental organizations.

SDG 17, Partnership for the Goals is a key SDG that enables the implementation of all SDGs. Achieving the goals Partnership requires a nexus approach to understand and develop methodologies for change. Businesses, governments and institutions will need to undergo systemic changes beyond the limitations of individual organizations or industries by removing their jurisdictional boundaries that resonates especially with SDG 16, Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions. This will require higher levels of partnership focusing on linking the implementations of SDGs and engaging with all the stakeholders. The level of partnership and integration is expected to grow as we face unprecedented challenges.

A Nexus Approach for The SDGs: Interlinkages between the goals and targets

Please join us on March 22nd and 23rd for the 9th PRME Regional Forum and Conference on the De Montfort University Dubai Campus and online and on March 24th for a Gala Session at the Dubai Expo, UK Pavilion.
