Using Our Superpowers to Save the World: Introducing the UN Sustainable Development Goals to Management Students

Sustainable development is a powerful, significant, and occasionally controversial topic in management education. It usually refers to ā€œdevelopment that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." (2018, International Institute for Sustainable Development) The broad view of sustainable development is articulated on the United Nations Sustainable Development Knowledge Platform and consists of 17 wide ranging goals including Zero Hunger, Justice world-wide, and Quality Education. This session will be a hands-on exercise demonstrating how this topic can be introduced to management students to generate awareness, solutions, and critical thinking regarding the sustainable development goals.
