Muhammad Yunus Lecture on ‘Abolishing Poverty – The Human Rights Priority’
Wednesday, 17th March 2010 at 12:34 pm

Muhummad Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and founder of the Grameen Bank, spoke to an audience of 1000 in Sydney recently on ‘Abolishing Poverty – The Human Rights Priority’.

During the lecture, one of only two given during his recent visit to Australia, Professor Yunus discusses the Grameen Bank’s microcredit scheme, and how providing tiny loans to the poor has lifted millions of people out of poverty.

Yunus also encourages the audience to consider the role of ‘social business’ in addressing many of our social issues.

The lecture was a collaboration between the Centre for Social Impact, Business for Millennium Development, World Vision and the Sydney Peace Prize.
