This cutting-edge book finds that alternative teaching and learning methods, such as Responsible Management Learning and non-linear decision-making gameplay, can encourage deep learning, integrated thinking and a transformative consumer research perspective. Forward-thinking, it emphasises the importance of infusing the values of the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals into future curriculums, and discusses the eco-centric, embedded, transdisciplinary and personally transformative learning and teaching required to achieve these.

If we want to nurture students as informed, progressive agents of change, we need to adopt non-traditional, transdisciplinary approaches when teaching them about ethics and sustainability. This innovative book demonstrates the best pedagogical techniques and approaches to incorporate sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and ethics in business and law education.

Experienced teachers discuss the use of techniques such as Responsible Management Learning (RML) and non-linear decision-making gameplay in education, and find that alternative teaching and learning methods can encourage deep learning, integrated thinking and a transformative consumer research perspective. Forward-thinking, this book emphasises the importance of infusing the values of the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals into future curriculums, and discusses the eco-centric, embedded, transdisciplinary and personally transformative learning and teaching required to achieve these. 

With illustrative case studies and real-life reflections from students, it will prove invaluable for researchers of sustainability, corporate social responsibility and business ethics. Its discussions of assessment methods and student wellbeing will also prove a vital resource for educators and policymakers working in higher education in both the UK and internationally.

‘As sustainability and responsible business management have become topics of paramount importance for all types of organisations in our current society, it is crucially important to bring forward innovative education approaches to develop adequate knowledge and skills to deal with the challenges to implement and manage sustainable businesses. This book makes a fresh and significant contribution to this field by introducing forward-thinking approaches to learning and teaching sustainability and responsible business management embedded in fundamental managerial areas of organisations.’
