Call for Academics: Research Opportunity on Student Perspectives
Youth Talk, a research project in partnership between PRME and the Higher Education for Good Foundation (HE4GF), aims to promote new models of higher education to foster more sustainable management education.
Youth Talk is a research project with a global reach, collecting statistics and data on young people’s attitudes in over 200 countries around the world, particularly in relation to employment, work and further education.
PRME and HE4GF have launched a call for researchers to process and analyse the resulting datasets. The resulting studies and findings will be channelled into the UN Summit of the Future 2024.
