“Responsible Management Education: Sustainable Leadership in the era of Climate Change” Contributing to the UN Conference on Climate Change (COP15) in December 2009, Copenhagen Business School will host an international conference (23-24 November) on sustainable leadership and climate change in partnership with the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and the support of EABIS as a co-convener. The main focus of the conference will be on how business schools can help solve the climate crisis through new educational approaches, sustainable leadership, innovative business models and new forms of partnerships. The conference organisers invite participants from the broadest possible backgrounds: business representatives concerned about competencies of their future managers and employees; business schools’ and research centers’ faculty staff and other scholars of social science interested in climate change research and responsible education of future managers; NGOs and governmental officers working for responsible and sustainable education programmes as well as students interested in influencing their own curriculum. Questions to be discussed, among others, are the role and responsibility of business schools and the contributions social science and business theory can make in the context of climate change.
