How can sport change the world? Chat with Professor Yunus & Abhinav Bindra

Get insightful perspectives on the power of sports to contribute to societal values, youth development, entrepreneurship and social upliftment.


Tue, 07/06/2021

In the wake of this pandemic and the adverse impact it has had on individuals as well as the economy, the role of sports in building a better and more inclusive society becomes even more crucial. A subject that requires further exploration is; how best to use the values that sport instils in us – resilience, discipline, leadership, and hard work – to bring about radical changes in our ecosystem. These values promote huge educational and life-skills, required for employability, livelihood and quality of life. This has led us, The Abhinav Bindra Foundation (not for profit initiative led by India’s only individual Olympic Gold Medallist), to start a series of dialogues with renowned experts with the aim of engaging with the sporting world as well as the general audience.

In our upcoming event, please join in to be part of Fireside Chat with Nobel Peace Prize laureate Muhammad Yunus, a Bangladeshi social business entrepreneur, banker, economist, and civil society leader. Through his initiatives, the ‘Yunus Social Business’ and ‘Yunus Sports Hub’, Professor Yunus has developed a global social business network that aims at creating solutions in and through the medium of sports. We implore you to not miss this opportunity to learn and interact with this luminary.

When: 06 July, 11.40 AM- 12.50 PM CET
