VISION SUMMIT 2009-Theme "Social Business: Next Fall of Wall" at 7./8. November in Berlin
The VISION SUMMIT 2009 takes place at the 7./8. November in Berlin. The Theme will be “SOCIAL BUSINESS: NEXT FALL OF WALL”. Because our ideas are receiving a great echo worldwide, we will use this momentum and organize our yearly event, the VISION SUMMIT, parallel to the 20. anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, on the 9. November. Consequently we will ask: Which Wall must fall next? Besides Muhammad Yunus, many other leaders from politics, business and civil society will attend the Vision Summit and set jointly with the people new impulses: In the next 20 years, the wall of poverty must finally fall. More Information about the VISION SUMMIT here: www.visionsummit.org
Further information will be provided shortly.
