//Get Real, Young Leaders to shape the Future of Sustainable Development

KUALA LUMPUR, January 17, 2018 – Many renowned gurus provide “head knowledge” but just a few excellent gurus offer “heart knowledge”. However, Professor Tan Sri Dzulkifli Abdul Razak, Chairperson of Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) who is also the Founding Convener of Sejahtera Leadership Initiative (SLI), has established brands to perpetuate dual talents to share the intellect while inspiring the soul of a student with nearly equal priority with perfect outcome.

It was very refreshing and heart-warming to watch some hundreds of students and academes of UCSI University led by Vice Chancellor and President, Senior Professor Dato’ Dr. Khalid Yusoff, gathered at the Main Auditorium of Its University KL Campus to listen and engage with Prof Tan Sri Dzulkifli on the topic entitled ‘Three Decades of Sustainable Development: What’s Next?’

Upfront Prof Tan Sri Dzulkifli acknowledged that UCSI Group strongly supports United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Target 2030. He explained UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development and the diversity achievements of 150 Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) world-wide in collaboration with United Nations University. Fundamentally, Sustainability begins with a principled approach to doing business and the Happy Planet Index (HPI) measures sustainable wellbeing for all. He cited how well nations are doing at achieving happy, long and equitable lives balancing it with human dignity, economic prosperity and fairly societal justice.

Prof Tan Sri Dzulkifli briefed on the triple bottom-line that currently based on 3Ps: Dematerialise,
Wellbeing, Balanced [e]co-existence and relate it with the New upcoming 3Hs: Humanise, Hi-Touch and Humanity moving towards micro & macrocosm balance. In responding to questions from students who are the future leaders, he impressed the need for them to really understand the relationships between Human Intelligence, Artificial Intelligence and Primodial Intelligence.

For What’s Next , Prof Tan Sri Dzulkifli urged the young leaders to be knowledgeable of future trends and challenges in execution of SDGs. They must do re-balancing the “imbalance” of the past loss of wisdom, human dignity, well-being, culture of humility and collapse of “ecosystem’. There are still opportunities for the young leaders to move towards healthier, greener, and more sustainable practices that will make us achieve brighter future for our successor generations.
