"Let us send poverty to the museum"
Professor Muhammad Yunus
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 1: No Poverty focuses on ending poverty and includes helping millions of people to achieve the ability to live a sustainable life that includes basic personal needs of shelter, food and water, health and education.
The Yunus Social Business Centre at Griffith University, established by a Memorandum of Understanding with the Yunus Centre, Dhaka, Bangladesh, focuses on enhancing business, social entrepreneurship and responsible leadership values. YSBC is one of an increasing number of Yunus Social Business Centres in Australia and globally, and was formally opened by Professor Muhammad Yunus when he visited Griffith in April 2017.
