Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Ethics

General Description

Although not new in the developed part of the world, the concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and ethical leadership are making first steps in gaining popularity in developing countries, with Armenia being not an exception. Nowadays many Armenians can hardly explain what constitutes to be a good corporate citizen, which is quite often confused with engaging in charitable activities. It is obvious that any for-profit entity is mainly concerned with earning and accumulating wealth, but the current worldwide trend is that this is not the only determinant of their existence and long-term success. More and more businesses realize that they do not operate in a vacuum; continuous interaction with different stakeholders is critical, with serious considerations for the environment, economically vulnerable populations, and the society as a whole.

In light of the above, it is therefore paramount to raise ethical competence and integrity standards of local managers for them to succeed in today's competitive and highly demanding world. With this in mind, the given training is aimed at familiarizing the audience with the theoretical framework for corporate social responsibility and business ethics, addressing the issues of its practical application, and exploring its contributions and limitations to the society.

Civil Society Day 2012

Civil Society Day 2012Each year, as we approach the Independence Day, on September 19th the Civil Society Day is celebrated in Armenia. The objective of this Day is to spread the idea of civil society among citizens and make them an integral part of this idea. That’s why every year the holiday bears the slogan "We Are the Civil Society".

The first time Civil Society Day was celebrated in Armenia was in 2009. Civic Development and Partnership Foundation (CDPF) and its partners organized a photo contest and exhibition named "Civil Society through my Eyes", accompanied by a concert program in Yerevan, at Lovers’ Park. Various civil society organizations, state and international organizations, as well as ordinary citizens participated in this festive event.

2012 will not be an exception, and this year Armenian citizens will again have the opportunity to hear and speak about civil society in Armenia and its achievements. This year the CS Day celebration is devoted to youth and teenagers, as they are the main cornerstone and future creators of civil society.

The event will take place again in Lovers’ Park (21 M. Baghramyan Ave.) and will be open to a wide public.

Join us to celebrate the Civil Society Day on September 19th, at Lovers' park!

The following programme is envisioned for the event:

  • Information fair with participation of the member organizations of CS Day organizational committee: 15:00-19:00
    Put in “Your Voice” Boxes description of issues you have or experience which need public outreach or solution.
  •  Forum theatre performance: 15:00-16:30
  •  Interactive trainings and debates with youth participation: 17:00-18:00
  •  Civil Society Wall: 15:00-18:00
  •  Opportunity for teenagers and youth to be engaged in public activities: 15:00-19:00
  • Concert: 18:00-19:30
  • and much more…
