As you may know, Thursday will be a very specific day: in the world, all social business entrepreneurs and all people that are committed in changing the world will symbolically gather to celebrate social business. This is Social Business Day.
Why the date “28th of June” has been chosen? Because this is Muhammad Yunus’ birthday ! Created in 2010, the Social Business day is a unique occasion to connect people all over the world, around innovation, empowerment, social entrepreneurship and others creative topics.
For the 2012 edition, the Yunus Centre organizes 2 days conference in Dhaka with great speakers like Pr. Yunus, of course, his friend from NASA Ron Garan, Eric Lesueur from Veolia Water (see here the Facebook page of their project) and many people that work at creating social impact on local communities. Please, find the program of the Yunus Centre celebration here.
On danone.communities side, we organize a meeting at ESCP-Europe, a business school in Paris. We will celebrate Social Business Day by giving the micro to people that will tell about their personal motivation for social business. As usual, the program is a kind of promise for a very good moment. All details here (in French only)
