Student CSR Article Competition
Have an impact, have a voice

The Council runs an annual article writing competition for students of all programmes in the Council's member schools passionate about responsible leadership, CSR, CSV, sustainability, responsible finance, diversity, inclusion and social entrepreneurship. Students are invited to submit an original 1,500 to 2,000-word article in English. Winning articles in each school win a cash prize, certificate and inclusion in the June anniversary issue of the Council's quarterly magazine Global Voice.

The 2021 competition is now open for registration. This year's themes are:

  • We citizens are clients, and sometimes we are also investors. We want good products, produced ethically and at an affordable price. At the same time, we also want our investments to be profitable. How to achieve an acceptable compromise? 

  • How has the pandemic given more importance to the role of women in business and society? 

  • How can firms achieve "technology for good" in business practice?

  • In the present context, characterized by interconnectivity and the need for economic reactivation, how might companies leverage the power of community to advance the alignment of their business objectives with the wellbeing of humans and the planet?

  • How can leaders manœuvre the Covid challenge: Save the company or save the employees?

  • How can organizations leverage their innovative capabilities to reduce their environmental impact?

  • The dream and reality of normalcy bias: difference and similarity across region, industry, and individual value recognition.
