If you’re in Melbourne on 9th of March…

…you should be here.

“From one of the world’s poorest countries, comes a man with one of the world’s richest imaginations, so limitless, that, for him, the idea of consigning poverty to history doesn’t seem far-fetched. In Bangladesh, 35 years ago, during a terrible famine, he had a simple idea: lend money to the poorest of the poor then watch as they transform their lives. He founded the world’s first “micro-credit” bank – the Grameen Bank, and, in 2006, won the Nobel Peace Prize. He has, literally, changed the world; Muhammad Yunus.” Read an interview with him here…

So Muhammad Yunus will be speaking on “Abolishing Poverty: The Human Rights Priority ” at Melbourne Recital Centre and it could be very very interesting [full details]

Also if you’re interested in this kind of thing, you can watch the recent One Just World forum on “What responsibilities do Australians owe the global poor?” here.
