The UK & Ireland PRME Regional Chapter (PRME UKI) was one of the first to be formed in 2013 by representatives of 32 PRME signatory institutions. In 2020, with over 80 members, PRME UKI represents a thriving community of practice, dedicated to championing responsible management education (RME) and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the Republic of Ireland and the four home nations of the United Kingdom: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Governed by a 10-strong Steering Committee elected by its members, PRME UKI is self-funding, has its own Secretariat and website, and serves its members in five key ways: organising networking events throughout the year, including an annual conference; stimulating faculty and student engagement through funded competitions; sharing resources and news through its website and mailing list; collaborating with the wider responsible management education eco-system; and contributing to development of the PRME initiative around the world
The foundations of the UK & Ireland PRME Regional Chapter are strong, and this indicates that efforts to transform management education in the region are gathering pace. Given the relative success of PRME UKI, the purpose of this chapter is to explain where and how all of this started, how it developed, and its ambition to help PRME to realise its mission of realising the SDGs through responsible management education.
