Middlesex University Dubai delivers second series of sustainability training sessions for DHL

  • August 1 2022

Middlesex University Dubai's inter-disciplinary Institute of Sustainable Development (ISD) recently delivered its second round of workshops as part of DHL's Salam Sustainability Leadership Mindset training. The session was attended by 22 participants from 13 different countries across the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.

A cross-faculty team from Middlesex’s Schools of Business, Media and Education came together to deliver a series of collaborative sessions and informative lectures on subjects including design thinking, sustainability reporting, the UN Sustainable Development Goals, creating shared value and more. All content was delivered online using best-practice e learning and collaboration tools.

Andrew Mackenzie, Head of the Institute of Sustainable Development at Middlesex University Dubai said: “We are delighted to have been invited to contribute to DHL's sustainability journey and improve the lives of people across Africa. The Salam programme is a manifestation of our campus' commitment to turning ‘knowledge into action’ and demonstrates how partnerships can help to contribute to achieving the global sustainable development agenda.”

This is the latest in a series of engagements between DHL and the University’s ISD. The first training programme for DHL employees delivered by the ISD team took place in October 2021 and featured a 3-day training programme of sessions for employees across 11 MEA countries. Following the ongoing training sessions, DHL is set to design sustainable development activities for four African countries and carry out prototype interventions prior to a broader and more structured rollout of their new sustainability initiatives.
