Reviving the principles of the Senate of classical times, we are a well-balanced circle of peers with independent minds striving for a common good and are not tied to any special interests. The Honorary President of the International Senate is Muhammad Yunus, recipient of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.
Senate members (“Senators”) are strong solution minded and action oriented leaders. Executives, company owners, decisions makers and academics, who maintain long-term relationships based on trust and mutual respect. Senators are advocates for a sustainable, fair and responsible economy on a regional, national and global level while facilitating opportunities to grow in new markets or industries.
A Senator is appointed through a selective process. Invited to join are individuals who are recognized leaders and have demonstrated integrity, alignment in sustainable business, education and social responsibility. The number of Senators is limited to the total number of seats in Congress.
