“I always felt amazed at the limitless power of sport. It is powerful because it is basic to human nature. Where there is power there is always a chance to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.”
– Professor Muhammad Yunus
WHAT COMES FIRST TO YOUR MIND WHEN YOU THINK OF SPORTS?
Don’t worry, we are not going to try to motivate you to go to the gym. What we are going to do is explaining to you the connection between sports and social business, and their power to create sustainable positive change.
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus, his creative advisor Hans Reitz and Yoan Noguier put their efforts into one and founded the Yunus Sports Hub in May 2018.
“Sport has a tremendous power – how can we use this power to solve people’s problem?” (Yoan Noguier) – This is the guiding question of the newly established organization.
As social business and sport expert, we help organizations, whether they are sport-related or not, to drive positive change in the society thanks to the power of sport and social business
– We design and run ambitious social business and sports programs
– We connect the social business and the sport worlds in best-in-class events
– We support social businesses in link with sport
Therefore, during the Global Social Business Summit 2018 the topic of sports and social business will be part of a panel discussion where we will focus on presenting existing sport and social business initiatives. The panelists are happy to share their ideas and actions on how it is possible to tackle poverty with sport and social business. Each of them will focus on talking about opportunities related to their particular level of engagement and expertise.
CONCRETE ACTIONS ARE TAKEN ALREADY
We are proud to share with you our success! On May 23rd 2018, Prof. Yunus signed with Paris 2024, Solideo and Les Canaux an agreement to lay the foundation of the Impact 2024, a program that aims at putting social business at the very heart of the planning, delivery and holding of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
