Indonesia Global Compact Network Makes SDG Tangible and Foreseeable

I wrote this to fulfill my part on helping my colleagues in IGCN on Leaders Forum in Jakarta, Indonesia 🙂 Kudos to them!

Indonesia Global Compact Network or IGCN is striving to socialize and encourage other business leaders in doing a different approach on how they conduct their business. This different approach is tangible only by aligning the UN Global Compact Ten Principles and the Sustainable Development goals with the existing company and/or organization goals to make sure that all stakeholders are going in the same direction.In accordance with this enlightening goal towards creating a better place for humanity, IGCN arranged a 3-day event titled IGCN Forum 2017. Bringing the theme of “Making Global Goals Local Business”, the forum was located in Plaza Simas, Plaza Simas, Jl. Fachrudin No. 18, Kampung Bali, Jakarta Pusat, Indonesia. It was conducted from 17-19 October 2017, from 09.00 AM to 13.00 PM and to 17.00 PM in the last day.

Due to the increasingly urgent matter of SDG in the present world, IGCN is making IGCN Forum 2017 as the medium, the place for everyone, from students to lecturers, business leaders to government officials, to gather and deliberate with each other in finding the ideal solution on putting the issues to an end.

In the IGCN Forum 2017, invitees and guests listened to many prominent panelists with extensive background, sharing their insights and experience in their respective industries under 3 (three) different forums: Leaders Forum, Woman Business Forum, and Business Sustainability Forum. These forums complemented each other to amplify the message and calling all leaders and the society to act – giving results with continuous development based on constant monitor towards the quality of their output from the conducted efforts.

Held on Tuesday, 17 October 2017, the forum was consisted of 2 (two) panel discussions, which are titled “The World We Want” and “SDGs Means Business”. These panel discussions validate the importance of everyone that might be involved, especially leaders, in creating innovative ways through cooperative work.
