The mission of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative is to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally.

The workshop aims to illustrate the need for value based education system, because today society faces many pressure and pulls of modern day advancement and the Indian Education system continues to be inspired by certain values. There has been a clear distinction drawn between Tradition Education System and Western Education System. There has also been a changing trend in Education System because of globalization, technology and the need for trained talent. Today we are more aware of our shortcomings than ever before. Technology helps in bridging this gap by delivering more, in limited time and space. Goal 4 has been given a adequate highlight which reflect upon the Inclusive and Equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.  Global Compact has played a pivotal role of bringing in business perspectives in the process of shaping SDGs. It has consistently provided input to Governments, the Secretary General and the system at large. These inputs were based on surveys, consultations and discussions among thousands of business participants and local networks.  The three pillars of Public Interest has been importance because there has been a integration of Government, Business and the Civil Society which is essential for the successful accomplishment of all public interest initiatives. Together they provide a more holistic view of the broader areas of concern and subsequently lead to a more sustainable future for all. And, any form of Sustainable Development could not be achieved without the collective efforts of these entities.
