To promote and support the concept of shared societies and values that can be built by creating added values in broader context, equal opportunities and “united in diversity” concept.
On the platform of Club de Madrid project Shared society, we are commited to go a step further and to promote shared values in a socially cohesive society, values that are inherent to a democratic society, and how these values can be shared globally and within individual societies.
Socialy cohesive society is stable, safe. It is where all those living there feel at home. It respects everyone’s dignity and human rights while providing every individual with equal opportunity.
A ‘shared society’ is a socially cohesive society. It is stable, safe. It is where all those living there feel at home. It respects everyone’s dignity and human rights while providing every individual with equal opportunity. It is tolerant. It respects diversity. A shared society is constructed and nurtured through strong political leadership. (Club de Madrid definition)
At the same time the communities must take a lead in bringing business and society back together as well. This leads us to the principle of shared value, which involves creating economic value in a way that also creates value for society by addressing its needs and challenges. (Porter and Kramer)
