CGSC Hosts the First Cambridge Round-table Conference on Economy of Goodness


Hosted by the Centre for Goodness Studies, China (CGSC), the first Cambridge round-table conference on economy of goodness was held at Murray Edwards College, the University of Cambridge from April 3rd to April 8th. The round-table conference consists of two stages – the programme on economy of goodness for the first four days and a two-day symposium regarding relevant discussions.


During the programme, prestigious scholars and experienced entrepreneurs – Prof. Rey Sheng Her, Prof. Richard Gombrich, Prof. Roel Sterckx, Prof. John Hoffmire, Geoffrey Bamford, Vincent Shen, Joe Hsueh, President Lu Tingjie etc. – gave talks on economy of goodness from different aspects such as management, technology and philanthropy. In the symposium, representatives of enterprises of goodness worldwide shared their own experience of running good business and were altogether involved in discussions on the future of economy of goodness.


The chief advisor of CGSC, Prof. Rey Sheng Her emphasised that the enterprises of goodness should take altruism as the core principle, employ collaborative strategy and build good relationships with others. “Everything we do will eventually have an impact on ourselves, therefore to be altruistic will better serve ourselves”, said Prof. Her. Citing the cases of Steve Jobs and Ma Yun, he further demonstrated that the core belief, value-based leadership, the concept of altruism and collaborative strategy are the cornerstones of business sustainable development.


After heated discussions, the delegates arrived at a consensus that goodness studies should be a milestone in the development process of human civilisation. By combining online and offline interactions, CGSC aims to build an open platform for entrepreneurs to enhance their strategies and methods of business management through collective dialogue and collaboration. The unity of entrepreneurs of goodness and the formation of such a network will strengthen the mutual support among entrepreneurs from different industries, thereby fostering the birth of more enterprises of goodness.


At the end of the conference, all the delegates obtained certificates for their successful attendance and became the “noble man” of CGSC. With an expectation of being practitioners and pioneers in this field, they signed “The First Round-table Conference on Economy of Goodness Joint Declaration” and promised to undertake the mission of promoting the development of goodness studies.


Along with intellectuals who would like to devote themselves to “goodness noble man”, CGSC intends to inaugurate a new era of goodness.
