The Champions Meeting will kick off in the morning of Tuesday, 7 November.

Main reasons for having a combined meeting in Winterthur:

  • The Chapter Meeting DACH brings a great number of business schools from across the region, which provides an opportunity for Champions to meet and connect with them;
  • The Chapter Meeting DACH will include a part of the SDG Roadshow run by a number of Champion institutions and PRME schools in different regions. In this case, it will be in collaboration with the UN Global Compact Local Network in Switzerland, potentially bringing a number of Swiss companies to the event;
  • Zurich is usually easy to travel to for many of the PRME Chapter DACH and Champion institutions and the beautiful city of Winterthur is approximately 15-20 minutes away from the Zurich Airport by train.

We will share a draft programme overview of the meeting in due course, as well as a registration link. 

You are welcome to take advantage of the opportunity to combine the weekend of 4-5 November in Zürich or Winterthur with this PRME event! A block of rooms has been reserved at a preferential rate at ibis Winterthur City.
