  We Are Not Job Seekers
  We Are Job Givers
  Professor Muhammad Yunus, 
  Nobel Peace Laureate


The large Australian delegation including university students, academics and the Board and key staff from Grameen Australia joined over 1,600 delegates from 30 countries including Ambassadors from France, Sweden, US, China, Britain and a senior government representative from Malaysia in Dhaka for Social Business Day 2015 (SBD), under the theme ‘We Are Not Job Seekers, We Are Job Givers’.

Professor Yunus opened the 5th SBD with the words “Human Beings are go-getters – that’s the essence of human beings”. He called on the audience to see the label unemployed as ‘casting a spell’ that takes away dignity and the sense of possibility. He challenged the audience to redesign their thinking processes to see people as go-getters, as the way to rid the world of unemployment permanently.

 Professor Yunus asked the audience to focus on Three Big Zeroes

1) Zero Poverty

2) Zero Unemployment

3) Zero Net Carbon Emissions

The Tools to drive this fundamental change are:

o) Young People

o) Technology

o) Social Business

o) Good Governance
