Global Executive Leadership Program launched today
In the current unpredictable international situation, it is increasingly important to cultivate youth leadership. Today, the online special training program “Global Executive Leadership Program” for international young leaders hosted by the World Harmony Foundation, is successfully held during the epidemic.
Outstanding students from Tsinghua University, Peking University and Xi’an Jiaotong University attended today’s opening ceremony. Under the leadership of Frank Liu, chairman of WHF and spokesman of United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, and professor Richard Jordan, chairman of the 60th UN NGO conference and co-president of WHF, the students participated in the high-level round table meeting of ECOSOC today with the theme of “global anti-epidemic and sustainable economic development”.
U.N. Secretary General Guterres delivered an opening speech with the theme of “how to face the current epidemic challenge”. After that, Lester Wolff, the famous meritorious hero in the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States, the former ambassador of the United States delegation to the United Nations, and the most senior 101-year-old congressman of the United States Congress, gave lectures on the opening ceremony for the students, and made meaningful discussions and interactions on how to promote the improvement of relations among the United States, China and Taiwan. Then, Professor Richard Jordan gave the students a vivid first lesson about the United Nations and the orientation of the United Nations. After the first class, Linyi Zheng from Peking University said, “I’m very honored to be able to participate in the Global Executive Leadership Program.” Jiawen Yang from Xi’an Jiaotong University said: “I’m very impressed by the program.” Siyi Liu from Tsinghua University said: “I want to work in the United Nations in the future, so I will to do my best to learn more about leadership. That’s why I joined the Global Executive Leadership Program.”
Students think that direct dialogue with international rules makers is a valuable experience that is difficult to experience in the classroom. They are looking forward to broadening horizons and insights in future conferences and researches, and contributing their meager power to the harmonious development of the earth.
The Chinese organizer of the Global Executive Leadership Program, the president of UCE Chuanglian, an international internship education organization for youth leadership, and the secretary general of the WHF Education Committee in China, youth educator Derek Bai said: “since the implement of youth leadership education program for five years, thousands of outstanding Chinese youths have entered the international stage to exercise their professional skills and international leadership. This is to follow the trend of the times and this is very necessary.”
The cultivation of youth leadership should start with innovation, critical thinking and service spirit. But creativity, leadership and public relations are the short board of Chinese students. Cultivating the consciousness of making decisions independently is most needed. Secondly, they must pay attention to whether their choices are unique, and finally they must cultivate their ability to make their own choices. In international education, more attention should be paid to the cultivation of youth leadership. The promotion of youth leadership helps to internationalize China’s education, endow individuals with unique values in the fierce social competition and obtain a sense of achievement.
In the next 4 weeks, as a special training program, students can learn knowledge and handle cases that can’t be learned in class. In addition to the United Nations actual conference course arranged by Professor Richard Jordan, Frank Liu Chairman of WHF will focus on arranging actual case studies and let the students understand “how to organize and participate in the high-level activities of the United Nations?”, “How to become a youth think tank to participate in the improvement of Sino-US relations?”,“How to understand the Wall Street capital market, international law, public health and management?”, etc. And this can help students lay a solid foundation for becoming an industry leader in the future.
Anyone is a potential leader. Jack Ma said: Leadership = Vision + Mind + Power, which means that even if you have not done organization or leadership work yet, it does not mean you won’t do it in the future. We will strive to make our Global Executive Leadership Program better and better, and more efficiently inspire and cultivate youth leadership. Welcome aspiring young people from all over the world to participate in.
