About the 5th EuroCharity Yearbook
Now in its fifth year, the EuroCharity Yearbook aims at highlighting critical issues and helping galvanise public opinion into positive action. EuroCharity chose this year's theme, "Leadership for Sustainability," because leadership, more than ever, is needed to create a more just, sustainable, economically viable and thriving world. In challenging times such as these, where the world is changing, and changing fast, leadership for sustainability cannot be considered a "luxury" but a necessity. Each sector of the global economy and each corporation and organisation, regardless of its size or geographic reach, needs to provide for the next generations to come.
The 5th EuroCharity Yearbook will profile leading CEOs, corporations and organisations who/that are leading the way when it comes to sustainability. It will also provide a platform to leading decision-makers, visionary entrepreneurs, royal family members active in sustainability and leadership, Nobel Laureates, top university professors, gurus and other specialists to share their views and vision in this unique, 160-page international publication.
With a global distribution and readership, the "EuroCharity Yearbook 2011: Leadership for Sustainability" is an extremely timely and important international publication that will be published and publicly presented in June 2012. Further details of the official presentation date and precise venue will be announced in due course.
