Education for sustainable development
We want all students to graduate from the University with an understanding of how climate change is relevant to their subject area and their everyday lives and what they can do to address the effects. Our Climate Change Education Strategy was approved by the Board of Governors in 2017 and is available to view below.
The University will be implementing the NUS Responsible Futures programme in 2017/18 to embed sustainability and social responsbility across the formal and informal curriculum. We have been a member of the NUS Dissertations for Good initiative since 2016 and actively encourage students to partner with off-campus organisations and collaborate on dissertations and research projects themed around ethical, environmental, social or economic sustainability.
Education for responsible management
The Winchester Business School was an early and active signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) in 2008 and is proud to have played a leading role in the development of the PRME Regional Chapter.
In 2012, the Business School established The Centre for Responsible Management to bring together the private, public and civil society sectors to develop a community of practice, dedicated to the creation of a more equitable and sustainable economy and society.
In January 2016, Winchester was invited to become a PRME Champion School (one of only three in the UK) to contribute to thought and action leadership on responsible management education in the context of the United Nations sustainable development agenda. The Business School hosts the PRME Secretariat and Chairs the Steering Group.
