Statement of Support by Gratia Christian College to UNOSSC

As an institution sharing the goals advocated by the United Nations (UN), Gratia Christian College (GCC) is pleased that its Centre for Business / Social Sustainability and Innovations (BSSI) is a supporting organization for the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) “South-South Entrepreneurship Academy” initiative.

 

The BSSI is a body under the Business School (GBS) of our College, which aims to nurture young generations to be a servant leader to design, market and manage services to serve the community with knowledge, skills, attitude and values of servant leadership. The vision of our GBS is to enable students to reach their full potential by providing them a high quality professional education and cultivating a deep commitment to service. We believe that business education is not only about training future supervisors, managers and administrators, but also about developing dedicated citizens who have integrity and a servant leader’s passion for the community.

 

Through the BSSI, our GBS has the opportunity to be a partner of the UN’s efforts in sustainable development. In fact, there has been on-going activities related to UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and BSSI has been actively helping organize these activities. Past examples include Pioneer SDG Training and Design Thinking Pioneer SDG Training and Design Thinking / Belt and Road Initiative for the community, Youth Dialogue in Cyberport with students from Hong Kong and developing countries in March 2018, and UNOSSC EXPO in November 2017.

 

With the kind support from Cyberport, UNESCO HK Association, UNOSSC and the passionate involvement of BSSI, GBS of our College, we look forward to seeing the fruitful results of this collaboration.

 

Our College welcomes and appreciates further opportunities to work closely with UNOSSC on projects that “can help participating countries develop a mindset of sustainable development with service design, marketing and management knowledge and capacity to enhance their knowledge, skills, attitude, and values for becoming servant leaders and building an inclusive community”.
