SUSTAINABILITY & COMPASSION THE KEY DRIVERS OF CHANGE IN APAC REGION

MCI GROUP’S NISHA MULLATTI TO SPEARHEAD LOCAL INITIATIVES FOR MAKING SINGAPORE A “COMPASSIONATE CITY”

Singapore, 8th November, 2018. The Charter for Compassion (CFC), an international organization facilitating +400 city and community initiatives in 54 countries, is honoured to announce Nisha Mullatti as the Charter of Compassion Champion for Singapore. Her appointment to chair and lead the Charter for Compassion chapter towards making Singapore a ‘Compassionate City’ will be to drive, engage, design initiatives and dialogues across multi-sector partners (government, corporates, and communities).
 
Nisha Mullatti, an entrepreneur and a corporate professional at the world’s leading events and congress management organization, MCI Group, is well posed to chair for CFC’s initiative in Singapore and contribute towards its global initiatives. She is a devoted mindfulness practitioner and has been supporting many volunteer initiatives and social enterprises globally and within Singapore, in fields such as mental health and women empowerment.
 
“Having been recognized by CFC to chair this volunteer initiative in Singapore, I feel extremely humbled to be in the company of some very inspiring path breakers. I hope to learn and able to contribute through this opportunity given to me for our global corporate clients, community volunteer efforts, sustainability initiatives at MCI and Singapore’s efforts towards aligning and achieving UN’s Sustainability Development Goals”, says Nisha Mullatti, Global Account Director & APAC Sales, MCI Group.
 
“The Compassion Charter works on developing community workshops, dialogues, events and programs supported by governments and corporates. With Nisha as the Charter’s face, we have no doubt that Singapore will be ranked amongst top ‘compassionate cities’ in the world sooner than later. Incidentally, CFC purports that compassion should be practiced for self, others and the planet and Nisha has exemplified this through her self-driven initiatives and commitment for Sustainable Development Goals both at MCI and beyond”, says Marilyn Turkovich, Executive Director, Charter for Compassion.
 
With Nisha in the lead, the Charter will invite communities of all sizes to bring compassion to life in practical, specific ways through compassion-driven actions- in businesses, schools and colleges, healthcare, the arts, local government, peace groups, environmental advocacy groups, local communities and Social Service Organisations. With appropriate partners (corporate, governments, NGOs, citizens passionate about compassionate communities and advocacy groups), the aim will be to identify which complex issues can be untangled by triggering compassionate behaviour.
For the past 30 years, MCI has been actively playing a part in making a better world. With its market size, reach and strong leadership the company has an obligation and opportunity to use its influence and resources to accelerate change. Looking at building a vibrant and authentic culture of care and responsibility that generates value for its people, the MICE business and society, MCI is committed to its sustainability goals and focuses its business around three priorities: People, Planet, Profit.

ABOUT CHARTER FOR COMPASSION
On February 28, 2008 acclaimed scholar and bestselling author Karen Armstrong received the TED Prize and made a wish—to help create, launch, and propagate a Charter for Compassion. After much work and the contribution of thousands of people, the Charter was unveiled to the world on November 12, 2009. Our organization -- Charter for Compassion -- was inspired by the Charter for Compassion, created by Karen Armstrong and the Council of Conscience in 2009, and inherits a confluence of contributions made by TED.com, the Compassionate Action Network, the Fetzer Institute, and many others. Charter for Compassion provides an umbrella for people to engage in collaborative partnerships worldwide. Our mission is to bring to life the principles articulated in the Charter for Compassion through concrete, practical action in a myriad of sectors. Aware that our world is deeply troubled and polarized the Charter for Compassion is committed to making the world a better place. We work to establish and sustain cultures of compassion locally and globally through diverse sectors—arts, business, education, the environment, healthcare, interfaith communities, peace, restorative justice, science and research, social justice, social services, science, and research and women and girls. At the heart of our work is working with cities to identify issues of concern that make their communities uncomfortable places in which to live. We believe that a compassionate world is a peaceful world. We believe that a compassionate world is possible when every man, woman, and child treats others as they wish to be treated--with dignity, equity, and respect.
