ART & ACTION: Social Business Fan Art

Women's WorldWide Web


On February 4th, Danone Communities’ Social Business Fan Art project brought together almost 3,000 people – including Prof Muhammad Yunus – to discuss Social Business initiatives.

Before this event (in Paris, France), volunteers created a fresco to promote the design of a new capitalism. The collaborative energy of the event was captured in the video below. We are particularly proud that the powerful words of Prof Yunus’ Nobel Prize acceptance speech were read aloud on the video by Lindsey Nefesh-Clarke, Founder and Director of the Women’s Worldwide Web.



“We Create What We Want. We wanted to go to the moon, so we went there. We achieve what we want to achieve. We accept that poverty is part of human destiny. It’s not! We believe we can create a poverty-free world. We need to invent ways to change our perspective. We can reconfigure our world if we can reconfigure our mindset. . Social business will be a new kind of business, making a difference in the world. Human beings are a wonderful creation embodied with limitless human qualities and capabilities. Entrepreneurs are not one-dimensional human beings, dedicated to maximizing profit. They are multi-dimensional: political, emotional, social, spiritual, environmental. The desire to do great things for the world can be a powerful driving force Young people dream about creating a perfect world of their own. Social business will give them a challenge to make a difference by using their creative talent. Let us join hands to unleash our energy and creativity. Collectively, we can create a poverty-free world.” Excerpted from Prof Yunus’ Nobel Prize acceptance speech on 10 December 2006. For the full speech, click here.
