Whether you are a passionate advocate for human rights, an avid promoter
of sustainable business solutions, or simply a rational, bottom-line economic realist,
it is evident that the world is in crisis and business as usual is no longer
acceptable.    The   global community      has acknowledged       in  the  Millennium
Development Goals the pressing need to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger;
achieve universal primary education and women's equality; reduce child mortality;
and combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases by 2015.            There is a call to
action to individuals, institutions, governments, communities and business entities
to work together for a more just and humane world.
Right now there is an amazing opportunity to co-create a new paradigm of
cooperative leadership for positive social, economic and environmental change. 2 It
