World Jewellery Confederation Education Foundation (WJCEF) is emphasising the connection between CSR and promotion of sustainable economic, social and environmental activity in countries where the jewellery industry is active, as its agenda for its first Executive Course in Corporate Social Responsibility which began in Antwerp on June 20, 2010. It is a three day course.

"The jewellery industry has come a long way since the year 2000, and the understanding that we cannot allow our business to cause injury to innocent people is well and truly imbedded in our consciousness. But the demand that we do no harm is only side of the CSR coin. Our goal here is to consider the other side of that coin, and that is how the jewellery business acts proactively to bring about sustainable economic and social development in the countries in which we operate," said Gaetano Cavalieri, president of CIBJO and WJCEF.

Participants who represent jewellery industries in United States, the United Kingdom, Belgium, India, Italy, Switzerland, Israel, Canada and Madagascar, were briefed on the United Nation's eight Millennium Developments Goals, by Dr. Hanifa Mezoui, president of UN-ONG-IRENE; Dr. Francois Loriot, vice president of AIFOMD; and Dr. William Gunn, president of the International Association for Humanitarian Medicine. The course will deliver lectures on application of CSR principles to small and medium-sized companies together by CSR consultants Michael and Ivor Hopkins of MHC International, an overview of Corporate Social Responsibility by Dr. M.J. (Mimi) Marroco and Ron Knowles, experts from the CSR Certificate programme at the University of St. Michaels's College in the University of Toronto.

. The participants include Jocelyn Fenard, chief of Partnerships and Resource Mobilisation of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and industry professionals as Charles Abouchar, president of the Stone Dealers Association of Switzerland, Moshe Mosbacher, president of the Diamond Club of New York. "The level of interactivity and engagement shown by the participants, all worldwide executive managers, is really impressive. It furthermore demonstrates their commitment as well as the need for further training," he said.
