CSR Services for the Educational Sector


Educational institutions play a fundamental role in the socio-economic development of any society and fulfil a twofold Social Responsibility. On the one hand, promoting socially responsible values in the students to create a more committed, engaged society, prepared to respond to great social challenges. On the other, these institutions’ implementation of values and management frameworks must be cross-sectional and touch each of their internal processes and activities. Esfera Social uses theoretical frameworks and methodologies specific to Educational Social Responsibility (ESR), University Social Responsibility (USR), and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
