Professor Muhammad Yunus visited Denmark in January 2013 where he attended in a day-long conference as a chief guest on 'Social Business' in Copenhagen. Denmark's Foreign Ministry in cooperation with the Confederation of Danish Industries arranged the conference. The main focus of the conference was to find answers to some of the problems the Scandinavian country faces. Christian Friis Bach, Denmark's Minister for Development Cooperation, was the host of the conference and Crown Princess Mary, who remains engaged with development issues, was also present on the occasion.
Prof. Muhammad Yunus was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the European University of Tirana in Albania on 22nd January 2013, for his outstanding contribution to poverty reduction in the world through his development and implementation of microfinance as well as for his pioneering work in the field of social business. By accepting the award, Prof. Yunus urged the young people to imagine the seemingly impossible and never think that a problem cannot be solved, since only by imagining that omething can be done, does one even begin to attempt to achieve it. “That’s the human spirit!”said Prof. Yunus.
While speaking in the session on â€œPoverty: A Great Terror?â€ Professor Muhammad Yunus extended greetings from Bangladesh, particularly from the youth of Bangladesh. He urged the Indian youth to create their own politics with a new vision for new generation by saying that â€ donâ€™t remain under the spell of traditional politics, look to the future, world is changing very fast and the youth have to redesign the institutions to face the new challenge.â€
He also said that â€œthe Indian youth should not think only about India, they should think about all the youth of SAARC countries and urged the Student Parliament organizers to invite students of SAARC countries from next year. This interaction will help us to solve many problems of the SAARC countries and the world.â€ â€œNot knowing something is not always bad. It may be possible that since your mind has not been biased by the established knowledge, it gives you the freedom to think of fresh ideas,â€ he added in his speech. Read More >>>
