Professor Yunus gave an online speech on the theme of "Global Sustainability Turning Point - No going back!", mentioning that "the pandemic may be the best vigilance!" When the international economic engine was temporarily suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, we recovered from the coronavirus pandemic. Seeing the selfishness and differentiation of human nature, ignoring the importance of group cooperation, and magnifying social issues, can we truly understand how many poor people are and how vulnerable people are! The whole world is looking for ways to restore people's livelihood and reduce harm, but it is more important to have a consensus: 2020 is an opportunity for rebirth. We will no longer return to the past where the inequality of wealth and the destruction of natural ecology is unsuitable for human settlements. It also emphasizes that the social enterprises that have been promoted must play a central role in the new world, because companies created specifically to solve human problems can ensure that social and environmental awareness are the first priority in the transformation plan.
Distinguished leaders and elites from all industries congratulated Yunus Foundation on its fifth anniversary. This evening event also utilized keynote speeches and piano performances to achieve a perfect collision of industry-government-academic exchanges.
The finale of the event was the internationally renowned pianist Hu Yingyun, a Taiwanese expatriate in the U.S., who performed for the public welfare of the conference with her eye-catching piano skills.
