Monday, Jan. 10th

Prof. Christopher Jahns, today, opened the 1st YGL Curriculum. He told us about the World Economic Forum and the Young Global Leaders. Moreover he introduced all the promising keynote speakers for the next five days. I think it was a good choice to apply for the 1st YGL Curriculum, having the chance to meet all those astonishing people with their great ideas.

The first of them was Felicitas von Peter who came right after our president. Her topic was "New Philanthropy", a topic that was not quite new to the most of us, as Yunus has already emphasized it when he visited Wiesbaden and also when he came to EBS to open up the Chair of Social Business. But I think one cannot mention it often enough: Every dollar donated is gone, but every dollar invested into a social business generates new dollars that can be reinvested. This thought fascinated her so much, that she founded her own social business called "Active Philantrophy" to promote the idea of such businesses that are not depending on grants and charity but on sustainable business models. Moreover she was reporting about some really cool companies she is working with.

Altogether a great start, I am looking forward to get to know more YGLs!
