THE 50+20 VISION

The 50+20 vision invites and challenges management education institutions to make a paradigm shift: seeking to be best FOR the world instead of best IN the world.  It was launched in June 2012 during Rio+20 at the 3rd PRME Global Forum as a short film and the 50+20 Agenda.

The 50+20 Agenda: Management Education for the World has invoked positive responses from across the management education field worldwide and a demand for practical support in moving forward in its implementation.

For more information about the Agenda including its bibliography please continue to this page.


The 50+20 Short Film “There’s no planet B” contains the voices and faces from around the world that have collaborated to develop and communicate the vision. The film was directed and produced by Ilka Franzmann and Claudius Bensch. To view the film and credits please continue to this page.

During RIO+20 Ilka also directed the filming of a web documentary and interviews which can be viewed here.
