Call for Contributions – Track “Educating Future Sustainability Change Agents in business schools” at the 9th RMER

Dear colleagues,

we invite you to submit your work to our track “ EDUCATING FUTURE SUSTAINABILITY CHANGE AGENTS IN BUSINESS SCHOOLS” at the 9th Responsible Management Education Research (RMER) Conference, which will take place from 27 – 29 September 2022 in Innsbruck, Austria.

The track focuses on so-called Sustainability Change Agents (SCAs) who can facilitate necessary change and contribute to more sustainable societies. In order to become successful SCAs, individuals not only need to be equipped with factual knowledge from a variety of disciplines, they also need to train certain competencies such as systemic and normative thinking, they should be able to work in diverse teams, create strategies as well as put plans and interventions into action. Overall, the track intends to discuss past and current practices with fellow researchers, practitioners and students, and to co-inspire innovative designs of competency -oriented approaches to educate future sustainability change agents in business schools. You can find more information about the track and the conference here: https://www.mci.edu/de/hochschule/das-mci/responsibility/9th-responsible-management-education-research-conference

The paper submission deadline is June 15, 2022.
