In order to disseminate the results of the project to various participants, several regional events will be held in the partner countries in the coming years. Events here in Hungary can be found in our Calendar of Events, and for useful, interesting, downloadable materials click HERE.
Responsible thinking is one of BBS’ traditional values and is still the focus of its strategy. In the first half of 2017, the university created and adopted its sustainability strategy (LINK to the goals sub-page), based on which, as a responsible higher educational institution, it consciously assesses, manages and communicates its own socio-economic-environmental impacts and incorporates experience into its operational, research and educational strategy. One of the key areas of the sustainability strategy is responsible education and research, and as part of the ISSUE project, the University is looking for methodological solutions to help the internal community gain a deeper understanding of the topic and activate participants by involving them in sustainability initiatives. In the case of methodologies and solutions, it is of primary importance to show as many practical, real economic challanges as possible, as well as experience-based solutions that strengthen the gamification approach. In addition to involving students and employees, the emphasis is placed on developing common thinking with members of the business community through relevant case studies, professional collaborations and initiatives. As the University is a member of the PRME (Principles for Responsible Management Education) organization, the selection of partners was in part based on the fact that we can tender for projects together with other international affiliates.
The main goal of the launched ISSUE project is to develop and apply various educational tools in higher educational institutions based on the principles and goals of sustainable development. Sustainability thinking needs to be integrated into the lives of all organisations through knowledge, commitment, collaboration and innovation. Higher educational institutions need to ensure that their leadership, faculty, staff, and students not only understand sustainability, but are able to act, behave, and disseminate sustainable practices. The project partners will develop content and tools on various sustainable development topics with a modern pedagogical approach, that can then be adapted to the different target groups of the university.
