This past June, it was our honour to host the 1st PRME Canada Regional Meeting at MacEwan University’s City Centre Campus. At this meeting—e3=earth education economics—students, academics and business people from across Canada met as the nation-wide discussion regarding sustainability in management education began.

From this meeting emerged a network of the Canadian PRME signatory institutions in attendance, as well as a collaborative agreement to continue the regional meeting on an annual basis. A great deal of recognition for the success of this event goes the undergraduate students who submitted and presented their research papers, all of which sparked meaningful conversations.

We would like to thank all those who attended and contributed to this historic event, with special thanks to the regional meeting’s co-convenors—the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University and the College of Management and Economics at the University of Guelph.

Proliferating sustainability and challenging ourselves to be ethical global citizens in both our personal and professional lives is very important; our future depends on the actions we take today. We are very fortunate to have partnered with the Earth Common Journal and are pleased to see student works submitted to the PRME regional meeting published in this special issue.
