Grande Finale of the Social Business Tour!
28 and 29 October 2010, Bucharest
30 October 2010, Belgrade
Social exclusion, destitution, poverty. Not only people in the developing world and emerging countries have these problems. They are also increasingly prevalent among us in Central and Eastern Europe. 17% of Europeans dont have the means to meet their most basic needs, according to a recent statement by the EU Commission. We are of the firm conviction that new and innovative approaches are needed to take this situation firmly in hand in the interest of disadvantaged people and to create an economically and politically stable Europe that is prepared to face the future.
Under the patronage of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Prof. Muhammad Yunus we are introducing with the Social Business Tour the ground-breaking social business concept into Central and Eastern Europe and begin a long-term social business initiative. If you find this as exciting as we do finding ways to combine the entrepreneurial spirit and innovative business ideas in order to solve social problems we extend you a hearty welcome to join us at our final two stops: Bucharest and Belgrade.
The Social Business Tour 2010 will create a powerful initiative for a long term social business initiative in Central and Eastern Europe and make a significant contribution to the 2010 European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion.
