The declaration of the WTP-SFH welcoming address was delivered by Prof. Dr. Timi Ecimovic, the President of SEM Institute for Climate Change in Slovenia . According to Prof. Ecimovic the objective of the WTP-SFH declaration is an initial declaration in China to open the possibilities for work on the sustainable future of mankind. It means from the planning stage to the implementing stage. Everyone could contribute something for the benefit of humankind.  

世界思想家对于人类未来的持续发展专家小组宣言由斯洛文尼亚气候变化研讨机构主席 Timi Ecimovic博士教授宣读。根据Timi Ecimovic博士教授所说,世界思想家对于人类未来的持续发展专家小组宣言的目的是在使开展为人类可持续性发展而工作成为可能。这意味着工作已经从筹备阶段进行到执行阶段。每个人都要为人类可持续性发展做出自己的一份贡献。

The ceremony concluded with a statement by Sir Prof. Dr. Major Roger Haw from Malaysia , one of the Founding members of the WTP-SFH. He said that “The rising trends of global population, globalization, the existing deplorable conditions of the environment at global and national levels in relative contribution of various environmental degradations (producing unhealthy foods, providing endangering and unethical services, human being’s attitude with lack of social responsibility practice, the technology advancement gradually replaces traditional culture position, the natural disaster constantly happening in the world and all these) have urged the Founding members of WTP-SFH from various countries to establish a mission of raising environmental awareness among people of the globe and nations to take up action plans in right earnest to ensure a sustainable future of humankind in the global perspectives. These are lessons for all countries, both rich and poor”


According to Ambassador Dato’ Dr. Ang Ban Siong, the Chairman of the Organizing Committee cum Chapter Founding member of WTP-SFH in China for this event, there were over 1000 participants who witnessed the event ceremony. The Declaration is giving rights, and is asking for individual social responsibility of members of the human global community (7 billion individuals). The goal is to reach global sustainability of the human global community. The global sustainability is a transition from a sustainable development societal technique to the sustainable future societal technique. The United Nations and other general assembly programs and organs or related bodies and agencies to the UN as well as UN information centers are also welcome to co-operate for the common goal of sustaining the future of humankind. This declaration will go on to other parts of the world. However, Xiamen , China will mark in history as the very first declaration venue in the world before embarking to the next venue.


Finally, on 26th September, the 1st International Conference on Protect the Earth and Ocean was successfully organized and implemented at Xiamen Ocean Vocational College with the Opening Speech by Prof. Yang Ling, President of Xiamen Ocean Vocational College.

There were around 200 participants who attended the conference and interesting discussion in the context of the critical subject area on how to protect and save the Earth and Ocean.


In conjunction with the Declaration effort we also made such a similar declaration on 26th September at the 1st International Conference on “Protect the Earth and Ocean” held at the Xiamen Ocean Vocational College (Xiang An), Xiamen Donghe Biological Medical & Edible Foods Institution’s Conference Hall.

b. Welcome proposal if you have book(s) or CD(s) to print:

Ansted welcomes publication proposal to help further the mission of the university in terms of teaching, research and its relations with the global community. If you are interested in submitting your proposal, kindly request us to send you the project proposal guidelines. Sometimes also we invite organizations or companies join hand with us to sponsor our publication projects. A relatively small amount of funding is sought, primarily to establish publication and all time involved from those concerned will be freely donated. The benefits to be obtained are concerned with enhancing the reputation of the university and achieving a positive effect in the world community.

c. Ansted University works towards Social Responsibility cultivation objective

Ansted University strives to earn international prominence as a university of special distinction through its integration of teaching, research and service to society. It is deeply committed to the creative understanding of nature and human society as an essential element of the learning process. From our university perspective, one of the main aspects of human society is that of citizenship of our global community and that citizenship implies a sense of social responsibility and a putting back into the community at least as much as is taken out.

Social responsibility has implications not just for us as individuals but also as members of communities and society at large. The concept also needs however be applied to organizations such as corporations and governments. Sadly this is often more apparent by its absence than by anything else. Much of our publication has been concerned with the consequences of this absence and with fostering a debate about how this might be changed. Education is one way to bring about change and this is central to the purpose of the university, and the principal reason for my involvement. Another potential way to bring about change however is through an engagement in scholarly debate, involving as many people as possible from as many different backgrounds as possible. Therefore, your proposal to introduce an academic publication must be related to foster this debate and to raise awareness among our students of both the ongoing debate and the need for this debate.

d. About the series of CSR books launching:

Ansted University demonstrates its commitment to social responsibility through some of the activities of its Asia Regional Service Center. It publishes the periodical Social Responsibility: an International Journal. Two books also are available. These are The Stakeholders and Social Responsibility and SRW Social Responsibility World of RecordPedia.

“Books don’t just happen by themselves. A number of smart, dedicated, competent, and compassionate people have to care about a book (and its authors) long enough to get it all done. On behalf of the management of Ansted, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all the writers who contributed their effort and time to develop these publications and promote Social Responsibility globally together with Ansted University and me. I know, no serious academic text or reference or resource book will ever see the light of day without the careful and thoughtful work of professional and academicians. Those people reviewed, criticized, and improved the contents of these books in many important ways, and to each of them goes our gratitude.” Prof. Dr. Roger Haw

Over the last decade the question of the relationship between organizations and society has been subject of much debate, often of a critical nature. The decade has seen protests concerning the actions of organizations, exposures of corporate exploitation and unfolding accounting scandals. At the same time, ethical behaviour and a concern for the environment have been shown to have a positive correlation with corporate performance.

Ansted University Publication Unit has launched two times of these “Stakeholders and social responsibility” and “SRW Social Responsibility World of RecordPedia 2004” two books held in Malaysia. The first launching ceremony was opened to only CSR conference delegates and the second launching ceremony was opened to Environment and Disaster Management conference delegates to witness it. Both launching ceremonies were held at the international level.

The nature of corporate social responsibility is a topical one for business and academics. The book was 1st launched in conjunction with the 2nd International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Penang, Malaysia, 21-23 November 2004 and the 2nd launched was held in conjunction with the International Conference on Environment and Disaster Management "Our Shrinking World" is organized by the World Youth Foundation in cooperation with the Economic Planning Unit of the Prime Minister’s Department Malaysia, Ministry of Finance Malaysia, Ministry of Youth and Sports Malaysia, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Melaka State Government. .

The 21st century is an age when all people should learn to live in harmony. The best way we can put this spirit into practice is to become socially responsible people and organizations committed to the service of others.

Ansted brought together a group of Corporate Social Responsibility practitioners and experts as well as academicians and researchers from around the world who, in the spirit of peace and harmony, do so much to make this “Global Village” a better place to live in.

Corporations, regardless of size, play an important role in modern society. The effects of corporate activity impact the organization itself and society and the world in which it is immersed. Typical organizational influences are:

  • the distribution of wealth created within the firm to the owners of that firm (via dividends) and the workers of that firm (through wages) and the effect of this upon the welfare of individuals;
  • the enrichment of a local community through the creation of employment;
  • the effects of competition between itself and other organizations in the same market;
  • the utilisation of natural resources as a part of its production processes; and,
  • transformation of the landscape due to raw material extraction or waste product storage.


Thus, an organization has varied and wide reaching influences on its social, economic, cultural, and global environments. These effects can in some circumstances and by some people be viewed as beneficial and detrimental to others and, often, simultaneously.
The aim of the publications debate CSR, present records about social responsibility affairs and discuss how it can be implemented and continued. Readers learn from eminent experts from various parts of the world how each is dealing with CSR issues. Readers should not expect only economic or business approaches to CSR.

If you wish to read some of the commendable messages pertaining to our publication do write to us and we are very happy to send it to you for perusal.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a topic which is considered to be of particular importance at the present time and definitions of corporate social responsibility are many and diverse. In all however there is an implicit understanding that corporations are a part of society just as much as each of us is as an individual and have the same obligations to responsible behaviour.
The benefits of the book project:

  • Enhancing the mission of Ansted in terms of teaching, research and service to the community
  • Enhancing the reputation of Ansted worldwide as a scholarly community
  • Promoting Ansted through its reputation for scholarly debate
  • Helping to promote social responsibility and citizenship in the global community

The reason behind of SRW RecordPedia publication: Penang is an Island known as “Pearl of the Orient” in the world. Also it is a birthplace of “SRW Social Responsibility World of Recordpedia” - the first kind of world book of records with a focus in the area of social responsibility affairs. Prof. Dr Roger Haw, the Chairman and Founder/author of this book said that purpose of the SRW RecordPedia book is to keep track of all the CSR activities around the world. It shows how we practise, learn and grow as a result of individuals and corporate involvement in the community. This will get all the CSR Conference organizers around the world, CSR practice companies, CSR Awardees and all type of social responsibility illustrations recorded and compiled in SRW RecordPedia, which will provide a one-stop reference book for mankind to review. Prof. Dr. Roger Haw hopes that his idea to initiate SRW RecordPedia book project is a profound movement, which will mean a lot to the present and future generations. Perhaps it may be one of the tools to promote PEACE and a cultivating Social responsibility practice mission.

The SRW RordPedia has something to express: “Ansted University, since its inception has been cultivating social responsibility through various channels. “Ansted University is committed to develop a noble system of technology for educational development to achieve academic excellence and a caring community around the world.” Ansted Service Center gives me life. I am very fortunate to have a group of generous, dedicated and committed volunteers taking their valuable time, contributing their efforts and energy, nursing and taking care of me with LOVE.

I want to make this world a better place to live in and “to promote World Peace through cultivating social responsibility practice” in every corner of the Earth. That’s my main mission – why I was born into this world. No matter how, I want to make myself a leading example to mankind through cultivating social responsibility practice as part of the sustainable development agenda in each household and industry. I believe the contents of my body are a useful platform for readers to peruse. Just have a look at me, read me, browse through me and even criticize me…you will find interesting and valuable articles from researchers, practitioners, academicians and consultants from more than 60 countries. I am now reaching to over 100 countries. Finally, I was born…my journey begins “to promote World Peace through cultivating social responsibility practice. I trust you will love me like your newborn baby. Cheers!..Happy reading”

On 26th December 2004, just 33 days after an international launching of the SRW Recordpedia book (which mainly focus on social responsibility aspects), the silent and mega “Tsunami Disaster” that ever happened killed more than 350,000 people and caused a few hundred thousand more of them to be injured and lose everything they have had in the past. In less than 5 minutes everything was gone. Just imagine the strong impact of this disaster which called for reflection by the entire world of citizens on HOW IMPORTANT SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY PRACTICE really is. This SRW RecordPedia book includes documents of proof for the world. The future SRW RecordPedia book is equally important for you to read and keep it as part of the series of reference books which can be passed on to FUTURE generation. Have you got the SRW RecordPedia 2004?

At SRW RecordPedia, we take all the necessary steps to invite as many entries as possible for inclusion in this premier publication to recognize, appreciate and jointly promote Social Responsibility throughout every corner of the world together with individuals, corporate and government agencies by using SRW RecordPedia as an official profound publication in this 21st century and beyond. Its goals are to educate, share various types of Social Responsibility practice models, encourage and inspire individuals and Corporations to make Social Responsibility Practice as one of the sustainable development movements to become part of a human living culture valued in modern times. We should start to cultivate this practice as early as child age. SRW RecordPedia is a kind of Dictionary of Social Responsibility International Biography and illustration which is extremely useful for all researchers needing to know more about individuals’ and Corporations’ activities in relation to Social Responsibility aspects. SRW RecordPedia will become an important resource for references. SRW RecordPedia has been established not only to recognize record holders and awardees, but to also spur individuals, Corporations, groups, institutions, media journalists, press reporters and researchers.

The Commendable message from the Chief Minister of Melaka, Malaysia

"Greetings from the Chief Minister of Malacca cum Chairman of World Youth Foundation, Malacca. I am indeed glad to inform you that the ‘SRW Social Responsibility World of RecordPedia’ and ‘Stakeholders and social responsibility’ CSR series books which discuss about Social Responsibility affairs in a globalise world is very enriching and informative. In today’s world

where companies are moving towards free trade, major companies should play a supportive role by being socially responsible as they are a part of society. Though not a business requirement, CSR is fast becoming an established global corporate practice, which benefits the society that we live in. These books contain valuable insights on issues pertaining to CSR and the role that organizations, multinationals and all major stakeholders can play in becoming a part of it. The articles put forth in these books are very beneficial and I would recommend everyone to read these books.
