It is a great honour to be part of the Greater Bay Area Impact Forum Foundation. This year, the Global Sustainable Investments Research (GSIR) [website: www.gsir.ventures] has been launched under the Youth and Education Committee. We believe that building a sustainable future starts with building leaders, and we do so by connecting the best students from the West and East and provide them with the resources, experiences, and networks to succeed. In the future, we envision this program to bring great leaders that have sustainability at heart to the Greater Bay Area.
Now, we have the London School of Economics and Political Science, Stanford University, and the University of Pennsylvania on board. We are further expecting to add one more elite institution from the U.K. and two others from China next year.
The successful launching of GSIR is founded upon the huge support our sponsors have given us. Our sponsorship program is underway, where each sponsor will receive a Sustainable Blueprint Handbook tailored to each firm and an investment pitch. GSIR guarantees to deliver creative ideas and utilize our knowledge networks within universities.
GSIR’s vision in training students is truly materialized by our mentors. With them scattered across the globe and mainly based in Hong Kong, London, San Francisco, and New York, mentors provide industry expertise and useful projects which GSIR recruits can participate in. The GSIR mentor lineup is truly world-class, and there is no doubt that recruits will thoroughly enjoy the exposure.
As the year advances, GSIR will continue to improve, reflect, and reengineer to develop the best training program for future business leaders who have sustainability at heart. To tackle climate change and the extinction of mankind, the world needs quick and effective change; yet, such a strategy also must last long to prevent humans from reverting back to our old habits. GSIR wishes to contribute to this great evolution in any possible way, whether in any magnitude large or small.
