It is the fashion of modern times. Everyone is talking about the beautiful principles of corporate responsibility, sustainable development and corporate citizenship. While stakeholders are more and more demanding, codes of conduct and ethical management charters are introduced in the business world. But what are they actually doing about it? There are educational structures inside organizations, called corporate universities, that have a role to play to translate and implement the commitments of their companies into reality.<br /><br />At the 2008 GlobalCCU Forum, corporate university and corporate responsibility professionals from around the globe will learn from speakers from five continents, how to take action. The forum is the initiative of Annick Renaud-Coulon, worldwide expert on corporate universities and founder of the European Club of Corporate Universities.<br /><br />Renaud-Coulon explained, &ldquo;The aim of the GlobalCCU team and advisory board is to create a global long-term network of corporate university professionals to help each other tackle this and other major issues facing businesses today. This seminar is a real launch pad. It is a learning opportunity offering insights between peers from around the world, providing know-how over three intensive days of discovery, debates, confrontation, benchmarking, creating and sharing a corpus of knowledge.&rdquo;<br /><br />The 2008 GlobalCCU Forum is supported by the United Nations Global Compact. Georg Kell, director general of United Nations Global Compact, will address the forum on April 3. He commented, &ldquo;It is my hope that this forum will make a major contribution to spreading knowledge of the Global Compact and its mission to corporate universities, where thousands of employees are trained every year.&rdquo;<br />
