Solutions to issues such as global poverty, climate change and human rights will be debated and discussed at a School of Management event marking the birthday of the United Nations (UN) on Friday 24 October.

The School is signatory of the UN Principles of Responsible Management Education (UNPRME), which aims to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally. This year the University will be marking UN Day by inviting students to practically contribute to achieving the UN aims for sustainable and equitable development with projects at the School and across the University.

Putting the principles to work in practice, the University will use UN Day to introduce new forms of sustainability, such as showcasing student projects and encouraging the University to only purchase renewable energy. Based on their choice of priority issues students are invited to help make the School and the University more sustainable through practical work outside the classroom. 

The event is organised in cooperation with UNIGLOW, a social enterprise established by Mr Ram Kumar, an MBA alumnus of the school of management. Uniglow is a partner organisation with UN for post 2015 development agenda and involved in integrating and supporting various grass root level social impact projects with operation in India and UK.

The UN Day event will take place on Friday 24 October between 1:30pm – 2:30pm in the Bennett Building Lecture Theatre 3.
