Sustainability has become one of the most talked about topics worldwide, especially in Africa and the Middle East; these severe challenges must be addressed from population explosions, access to safe water supplies, food security and desertification.
Business Schools, as the region’s hubs of knowledge and managerial training, now have a choice to train professionals and conduct research to address these challenges with the help of following the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The principles of SDGs are a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet that Schools can leverage. However, there are multiple challenges in following and addressing them due to their broad scope and nature.
In this workshop, the second dedicated to African and Middle Eastern Business Schools, speakers will delve into their professional experiences in implementing sustainable practices in their Business Schools and how Business Schools can leverage the SDGs to play an instrumental role in addressing societal and environmental challenges.
