One of our fine tradition is to learn from the past, to learn from the great minds.
In the 18th century, Adam Smith discovered the invisible hand by the ‘wealth of nations’, and the spirit is based on ‘The Theory of Moral Sentiments’, which still influences the world today. Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus movement in the 20th century, and the Bauhaus spirit is about form follows function, a sustainable solution of design – which is also an invisible hand, and still influences the world today. Now in the 21st century, technology and digital transformation is the invisible hand influencing the world, but it requires a spirit to back it up – which is the four-way test from Rotarian, and may influence the world until 2100 or even longer.
