Lamdon Yarchos Chenmo 2023- Lamdon Golden Jubilee Celebrations
2 Day Conference on the Relevance of Compassion for the Environment, Entrepreneurship, and Sustainable Development in Contemporary Times
Compassion is essential for promoting sustainable development, protecting the environment, and fostering entrepreneurship in contemporary times. Compassion can be defined as the ability to feel empathy and concern for others, including the environment, and to take action to alleviate their suffering. It can also drive people to advocate for policies and practices that protect the environment, such as reducing carbon emissions and preserving natural habitats. In the realm of entrepreneurship, compassion can drive business leaders to prioritize social and environmental responsibility alongside profit-making. This approach, known as "conscious capitalism," recognizes the interconnectedness of business, society, and the environment and seeks to create value for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.
Compassion is crucial for sustainable development, which aims to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable development requires a holistic approach that takes into account social, environmental, and economic factors, and compassion can provide the motivation to pursue this approach. Fostering empathy and compassion can inspire individuals, businesses, and governments to take actions that protect the environment and promote entrepreneurship and sustainable development.
The conclave on the relevance of compassion for the environment, entrepreneurship, and sustainable development in contemporary times would provide a valuable opportunity to explore the connections between these areas and to identify strategies for promoting a more sustainable and compassionate future. It will bring together experts from various fields, including environmental scientists, business leaders, policymakers, and social activists, to share their perspectives and insights on the theme.
