Today we invite educators to join a global research project by engaging classroom students in how companies report and contribute to the SDGs. This project was launched in 2017 by WikiRate and the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), and has grown to over 3,000 students collectively researching more than 900 companies and gathering 90,000 new data points.
Sign up to engage your students from August to December 2019.
We work with professors to set-up collective research projects that fit to diverse curricula. Students can research companies on one or a range of SDGs while developing practical research skills and learning about issues of corporate impacts and reporting on the Global Goals. The project team assists in providing instructional handouts and videos on how to conduct research using the live platform WikiRate.org.
Get an idea of how the WikiRate platform works by taking a look at some of our ongoing research projects:
- Students from the University of Wollongong spent last semester researching how the Climate 100+ group of companies are performing on SDG13 Climate Action, and
- University of Sussex students looked into how companies report to SDG5 Gender Equality and SDG8 Decent Work
Contact us here by 15 September to express your interest in getting your university involved.
