Making friends and learning about CSR through the BBS Annual Poster Competition

First-year students recently took part in our annual BBS Poster Competition. The aim of the competition is to get students working together to create a presentation and poster on a theme within their first-semester topic, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Our 2017 poster competition invited submissions from all students from business management and marketing courses, with each group producing a poster based on Corporate Social Responsibility and Business. The winning group won £100 and group who came second were awarded £25.

Sustainability is a core value for the University of Brighton. We recognise the value and critical importance sustainability has for the future of our students, staff, partners and community.

This competition was specifically designed to help introduce students to this core value – encouraging them to understand and investigate how they can contribute whilst at University as part of their learning, and in their future workplace.

Within their first few weeks, students are asked to form groups in class, encouraging them to meet new people and broaden their circle of friends. They are then asked to pick a theme within CSR, draft a poster explaining their theme and present this back to a panel of judges.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year’s winning poster “The Price of Orangutans Lives. Is Palm Oil Worth it?” investigates the ways that corporations could minimise the use of Palm oil, which appears in a wide range of food and cosmetic products as well as in manufacturing processes. The effect of the farming of Palm oil includes Indonesian deforestation, which destroys habitat and contributes to climate change – affecting the lives of Orangutans.

Feedback from the judges:

“We liked many of the posters, they all had original elements some with more, some with fewer references.”

“The energy and thinking students put into their posters this year was commendable.”

“All posters were very good so all students can be very proud of their achievement.”
