Big Business For Big Solutions: Encouraging Corporate Social Responsibility

This session discussed the role that big businesses and entrepreneurs play in effecting social development and change. Considering that the international community is failing to react quickly and effectively to the emerging problems of third world countries, this responsibility falls on the shoulders of big businesses. As opposed to traditional approaches, big businesses and organisations should react quickly and effectively to operate in fragile economies, both to improve them but also to gain the capability to adapt in the respective economies. This session is bringing ‘for-profit’ companies and ‘non-profit’ social organisations like TRT World Citizen, Turkish Airlines and Windhorse International together to discuss humanitarian issues and corporate responsibility in enhancing sustainable development.
