  • UN PRME PRiMEtime Blog, Giselle Weybrecht<br />'How Schools are using WikiRate to Engage Students in Sustainability', Feb 25, 2019<br /><br />This blog features the WikiRate Student Engagement Program global research group, lead by Dr Stephanie Perkiss, Dr Bonnie Dean and Dr Belinda Gibbons from the University of Wollongong. <br />Late last year the <a href="http://www.unprme.org/participants/view-participants.php?partid=746" target="_blank" rel="noopener">University of Wollongong</a><a href="https://ro.uow.edu.au/buspapers/1503/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"> released a report</a> exploring the multiple ways the WikiRate Student Engagement Project was being implemented in higher education institutions in diverse classrooms around the world. WikiRate is an open database and research tool that allows anyone to collaboratively research and analyse data on socio-environmental impacts of companies. It is a part of the PRME Student Engagement Platform as the team at WikiRate has set research scopes that align with learning objectives and curriculum of a course. Several universities around the world run projects with their students to create new open data sets on companies’ sustainability – environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance.<br />The report features seven international case studies from professors/educators who have implemented WikiRate in their subjects/units. Students who conduct research and analysis on WikiRate learn how difficult it is to find good, comparable public data to make assessments. They engage with challenging topics, critically assess current corporate reporting practices and develop real skills to influence corporate behaviour from the classroom, and in leadership roles beyond.
